The Undead are created through the use of black magic, which is a violation of the natural order. Across history, humans have often sought out users of dark magic to resurrect lost loved ones, though this often ends in tragedy. Contrary to popular belief, however, the Undead are not infectious and will not lead to a plague.
The Undead resemble regular living humans. However, they must consume living flesh to remain in this state. If the undead do not sustain themselves, their skin will became pale and their eyes will become glassy and lose color. Additionally, their bodies will start to decay and decompose. This process can be reversed by consuming flesh, which allows the undead to regenerate themselves.
