Guardian Spirit

Guardian Spirit is an Acquired Template that can be applied to any Humanoid of at least 9 Hit Dice (Base Creature must have Levels as both Cleric and Fighter). They are also known as Vartha, and while some have become an Undead through intense greed, most are tasked guardians created by magic. They are one of the few Undead that aren't necessarily Evil. But for being pallid and shriveled one would not tell they weren't still alive.
