The Undead are, by definition, a type of living being that has either died and been reanimated by the means of a curse, magic, science, or an infectious virus, or remains living but has lost higher mental functions due to any of the aforementioned reasons.


The Undead are mythological creatures, usually monstrous, who exhibit characteristics of living beings after they are deceased. Their level of sophistication varies from creature to creature and story to story. For example, Bram Stoker’s Dracula, a classic Undead character, is well dressed, smooth spoken, and at times indistinguishable from a living person. On the other hand, the Undead zombies who ravage today’s horror and sci-fi novels are grotesque, unintelligent, and uncoordinated.

The Undead are, without doubt, a motley and diverse crew, but some of their characteristics are universal. The Undead are able, at the very least, to move around and manipulate their environments. They are usually interested in the living and attempt to either communicate with them or prey on them, and they are not vulnerable to death by natural causes.

Powers and Abilities

The Undead are extremely difficult to kill due to the fact that they are in limbo between the world of the living and the world of the dead. Certain Undead are capable of retaining the memories of their previous lives after death and others can use magic in battle.
