Advisor Quotes: [OPTIONAL] Ah, what do we have here. Behold the Kryphon, bound with chains their death sentence for their crimes was rather brutal. Wrapped in still hot chains, they where thrown, screaming, into a deep lake so their spirit would not enter the after life. As luck would have it, for us that is, the hate these criminals had for their executioners ensured that death wasn't their end. They are tied to water and do not get along well with anything that likes fire or lava so be sure to make sure they don't lair near them.

First off; Chain Demon picture from D&D.
Secondly I like this unit. It'd be good to have a different undead unit to the standard ones you get. Although I'd change his intelligence to low and training rate to high, because he's powered by vengeance and hate and that'd make him train harder.

Yea, I know its a pic from D&D. its the closest I can get to the idea of the unit without drawing it myself, and I suck at that.

I wouldn't want their intelligence low because they are not mindless like a zombie, hate fuels their undeath, but doesn't consume their mind. They rose themselves, which usually in fiction takes a lot of will power and those that raise themselves hold onto some intelligence.

Note that in the context of WftO, intelligence is research power, not IQ.
