Draug are malevolent undead found in Norse mythology and folklore, they blend elements of the corporeal undead and the noncorporeal undead and were believed to be the angry spirits of the dead who would return and spread plague and misery to the living.

Draug are very popular in fantasy media due to their links to Norse mythology and just like Trolls they are a staple of many fantasy games and novels, often altered from their depiction in ancient tales.


Draug could spread disease and death among the living as well as manifest both ghostly abilities as well as more physical abilities - either haunting areas of land and people or rising physically from their burial sites and roaming the land as disease-spreading zombies.
