No kidding. From those Candlekeep threads, it seems that they can't be killed except as a novel plot device -- don't know how we should address that. Ugh.
So, type: either native outsider or aberration or even fey would work for me, I guess. Seems like they really need to be tied to magic. There is the issue that they can change back and forth from undead, but I think their regeneration abilities (in your first post) make that kind of moot.
