Skeleton No-Head MkII, or Thralls, are a Race in Kenshi. They are a subrace of Skeleton. There are no Playable Characters which are of this race. Most Thralls are not able to speak intelligibly.

Compared to Skeleton Log-Head MkII which is a headed version, they have only half of vision range of 1 instead of 2, as well as less bleeding rate of 0.2 instead of 0.4. And they have bonus of melee-related combat skills of Blunt Weapons, Heavy Weapons and Melee Attack rather than range-related skills such as: Crossbows, Perception and Precision Shooting.

As thralls do not have a head, they do not have the normal critical weak-point of other skeletons. They do however, have the lowest health out of all skeletons.

It is highly implied from several sources including dialogue with Cat-Lon that thralls are either jury-rigged or lobotomised skeletons. The former theory can be gathered from the skeleton shredders within the tower of abuse and the latter can be gleamed from Cat-Lon's speech before initiating combat.


  • In real life, the word Thrall is a Scandinavian word for "slave or serf" during the Viking Age. Today, to enthrall means to captivate but archaically it means to capture as a slave.
  • The missing Head counts as an Injury, giving around ~50% penalty to all crafting tasks.
  • While most of Skeletons possess the sturdy 200 HP body model, Thralls are among the few models that have 120HPs. Since all of the Thralls use the 120 HP model and very few other models that use the 150HP model body, it can be assumed that the weaker, perhaps service-oriented or creative-minded, skeleton models where enthralled en-masse by their stronger 200HP cousins after the fall of the ancient empires.
