Alhoons are undead illithids in the realms of Dungeons & Dragons. Sometimes presented with the alternative name of "Illithiliches", which other sources claim are an entirely different thing, alhoons are mind flayers outcast from their society due to their study of the forbidden arts of magic over psionics. As this denies them their culturally-promised immortality through joining the Elder Brain upon death, Alhoons instead seek their own immortality through undead, becoming lich-like monsters that often prey on their living kin.

5th edition makes alhoons and illithiliches seaprate things (lolwhut?)
