With a competely tattooed forehead and hands, the champion bears an imperious, domineering presence. Muscular and athletic, the Ithzir champion is a full head taller than the average man, and her light-blue skin is completely hairless. Exuding an air of calm and in control, she appears dangerous and fearsome in any situation - and while she seems mostly humanoid, strange proportions and awkward construction make her alien and unknownable. The champion wears a well made royal blue tunic, with the image of a rearing griffin emblazoned in gold thread on the right breast.
Ithzir champions use warrior maneuvers, don't stun, and hit rather hard. While manageable in a group, things get dicier when the woods start to swarm.
Ithzir champions will only spawn in the North Woods area of Old Ta'Faendryl.
Champions will occasionally wield a jagged crystal-bladed flamberge or a heavy crystal-capped maul. Like the other crystal-bearing weapons the Ithzir use, they will flare with lightning, and even a light hit can be deadly.
Ithzir champions appear to be able to use a quickstrike, which shortens the already-brief delay before their next action:
The champion's face hardens in concentration, and he starts moving faster than seems possible.

A clean miss.
Ithzir champions know Bertrandt's Bellow, which can put its target in up to 20 seconds of roundtime. This roundtime can stack with itself, and with the roars/wingbeats of nearby war griffins.
An Ithzir champion glares at you and lets out a nerve-shattering bellow!
You maintain your resolve, ignoring the unnerving cry!
