The qutrub wrap themselves in bandages to slow the decomposition of their rotting bodies. Unlike the shambling undead that are afflicted with a curse after dying, these corpse-eating ghouls are beings that have succumbed to the charms of the Lamiae while still alive. Through dark rituals, they willfully attain an undead existence in order to serve their foul mistresses for eternity. Seemingly still afflicted by the desires of the living, the qutrub hoard valuable trinkets, and feast on the dead to maintain the traces of flesh and blood remaining to them. It is said that the blade carried by each qutrub is infused with their discarded life essence.

In order to make a Qutrub lose their blade you must attack their right arm. They carry two of them, and their special attacks will change depending which weapon they wield. Spinal Cleave is only used once they lose their first blade and attack with their fists. Qutrub will periodically switch between their fists and the blade on their back which contains their discarded life essence; should this second blade break, the Qutrub's access to the attack Spinal Cleave will cease, since this attack makes use of the second blade.

Historical Backgound

A Qutrub in Middle Eastern folklore is a type of jinn or demon, similar to a ghoul because it was said to haunt graveyards and eat corpses.
