A Kuva Lich is a massive undead creature that has been corrupted by the infestation of their feral Scourge Spectral Attachments. They possess a powerful aura which allows them to drain your shields and health, as well as increase the damage taken from other sources. If this creature is allowed to fully manifest it may be too much for any Tenno to handle. It’s best to hunt them down early before they become a bigger problem.

After they have spawned, their aura will disappear and reveal a pentagram shaped pattern on the ground beneath them.
