Clad in fatigued barding, the skeletal dreadsteed is an ossified vestige of a powerful steed.  Bits of dried flesh cling to the bones, but its ribcage is an open ruin that holds a twisting, nebulous orb of phantasmal blue flame.  More cerulean fire sprouts from its skull, neck, and hinquarters as an unearthly mane and tail.  Its bony hooves are shod in old steel.
