Rate this Mythological creature: The Wight?



undead or wraith-like creatures: corpses with a part of their decayed soul still in residence, often draining life from their victims. The earliest example of this usage in English is in William Morris's translation of the Grettis Saga, where draug is translated as "barrow wight". Notable later examples include the undead Barrow-wights from the works of J. R. R. Tolkien and the level-draining wights of Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game.

In the A Song of Ice and Fire novels (1996–present) by George R. R. Martin, wights are humans or animals killed by the Others (also known as the White Walkers) who reanimate as undead creatures with pallid skin, black hands and glowing blue eyes. Wights may be physically injured, but even dismembered parts remain animated, so they must be destroyed by fire. The humans who live in the north beyond The Wall—called "wildlings" by the inhabitants of Westeros—burn their dead so that they do not become wights. Wights are not vulnerable to obsidian and Valyrian steel, as the Other are.

  • No one likes wights. They suck big time. However, they are very interesting creatures. You should do a poll on white walkers, if they exist outside of the GoT universe.
