Undead

Adapted from Pathfinderwiki- Undead
Undead are once-living creatures animated by spiritual or supernatural forces, chiefly negative energy or evil magic that corrupted a recently departed soul. Undead can be of a simple mindless type, such as skeletons or zombies, or quasi-deities such as the most powerful liches. Colloquially, undead may be referred to as the walking dead.

Symptoms

Cultural Reception

Gradus

Creating and transporting undead creatures is illegal in most nations of Gradus (with Yimhia being the most prominent exception). The state of undeath is considered a severe moral crime as it violates both a person's body and soul. A network of smugglers attempts to circumvent these prohibitions, however, as the mindless undead make for tireless and inexpensive unskilled laborers; a humanoid skeleton can cost as little as 45 gold pieces. Such black-market undead are typically created by profiteering arcane necromancers rather than those that already serve cults or worshipers of evil deities, or hard-to-control spontaneously created undead.  

Necrografting

The practice of necrografting, also illegal outside of Yimhia , replaces living body parts or organs with those of undead bodies, often to grant the recipient some of the donor's physical or supernatural abilities—or more nefariously, to warp the unwilling in horrific experiments.
