Beings of fear and horror, undead are animate reminders of death’s inevitability. Lurking, lurching, and always hungry, undead are drawn to the heat of the living. Liches, skeletons, zombies, and even more fearsome shambling monstrosities shudder with ungainly grace after meals of blood and souls. And once a vampire has drained the life of a victim, it exhibits the most horrifying ability of all: The shell of its victim animates, turning into another of the walking dead.
