A stalhead takes the form of an animated skull, often the decapitated skull of a stalfos or other stal-creature. Like all such monsters, it has an overwhelming and indescribable detestation for that which yet lives. Even when it is nothing more than a skull, a stalhead will frantically hop towards any living humanoid it sees—even knowing it may accomplish little other than scaring the humanoid's ankles.
Undead Nature. A stalhead does not require air, food, drink, or sleep.
