Illiph Thraun was a Zhentarim wizard and wielder of the power of spellfire. He tried to become a lich to prolong his life but, thanks to his unique condition, the process went awry and Illiph only became a lichnee, a weak form of lich. The wizard Sarhthor tried to use him to subdue Shandril Shessair but she destroyed Illiph Thraun with her spellfire.
