Ghasts were a subtype of ghouls.[2]


They resembled very closely their undead cousin, except perhaps being just a bit more slender and ghost-like. The stench of death and rot lingered around their undead forms.[2]


Ghasts were also far more deadly and cunning than ghouls, with their paralytic touch dangerously affecting their opponents, especially elves. [2]


They often laired with others of their own kind or acted as the leaders of a group of normal ghouls.[2]

Like ghouls, ghasts spoke whatever language they did in life.[2]
