The ash ghouls are venthyr who have been exposed to the Light for too long, turning them into crawling wretches. The overwhelming pain caused by the Light breaks the venthyr's willpower, their mind, and finally their body. With the right skills, it is possible to reverse the Light's desecration if it is treated quickly, but the ones that inhabit the Light-burned crater in the Ember Ward are beyond redemption.
Notes and trivia
- Ash ghouls share the animation rig of geists, pale orcs, voidscarred, and Thros fiends.
- The ash ghoul model is internally named "ash vampire", likely a reference to the creatures of the same name from The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind.
