Invisible stalker is a type of monster in ADOM. They are rare monsters that, as the name implies, are always invisible. PCs lacking the ability to see invisible will sometimes notice being attacked by "something"... though this something is often easy to locate if the PC walking down a narrow corridor. They have a quite strong attack, so frail PCs should not delay in trying to locate and get rid of one. Since the only other type of non-unique monster that tends to wander around invisible is the ogre magus, if "something" doesn't suddenly bolt the PC with cold spells then it is more than likely a stalker.

Collective description

Something... a slight ripple in the air... an almost imperceptible shift in the scenery before you. You can feel its presence, some creature... invisible to the eye, but very real to the touch. You think you can hear it breathe, but that may be your mind playing tricks.

Females only

She seems to be extremely shy; you simply can't get a proper look at her, so anxious she is to escape your attention. Just a moment ago she was hiding in your shadow, now she creeps into a crack in the wall, and now she even hides behind the air itself! There must be something beyond common stealth and dexterity behind those powers of not being seen.
