Due to its unusual body chemistry, A skeleton has no need to breathe. It is humanoid. It has no mind, and is therefore not detectable via telepathy. It has a thick hide.

A skeleton is a magically animated undead creature. Unlike shades, only a humanoid creature can be used to create a skeleton. No one knows why this is true, but it has become an accepted fact amongst the practitioners of the black arts.
