'Lich' is Old English for 'corpse'. It is also a powerful undead sorcerer which has separated its life force, moving it from its body to an item called a phylactery to grant it everlasting life along with the immense power it had in life, which can be augmented infinitely since it will supposedly have an infinite amount of time to study and hone their magical craft. Their life lasts as long as the phylactery remains intact, and they will die if it is destroyed. It hails from Dungeons and Dragons, which the original Final Fantasy draws a lot of its bestiary from.
