Alhoons were magic-using outcasts from mind flayer societies who had defied the
ruling elder brains to achieve a limited form of lichdom. Only the most powerful
mind flayer mages could achieve true lichdom and were known as illithiliches;[1]
however, many in the Realms did not make this distinction.[2]

Alhoons combined powerful wizardry and sorcery with their innate skill at psionics
to become a new threat to the established order of the Underdark and beyond. Their
skin possessed none of the wet, smooth, slimy texture of living illithids, instead
appearing dry, wrinkled, and cracked as a result of the powerful magic resistance
that had prevented a perfect conversion to lichdom.

Alhoons were ignored, feared, and hated by mortal illithids for their rejection of
the illithid circle of life, culminating with the physical and psychic merging with
an elder brain.
