Animated by dark magic, nothic skeletons are brought into undeath to serve dark wizards. Like a living nothic, a nothic skeleton will search for arcane lore, but in its degraded state it cannot tell the difference between genuine magical knowledge and entirely unrelated tomes and scrolls, so it keeps whatever it can find.
Undead Nature. A nothic skeleton doesn't require air, food, drink, or sleep.
