Kingdoms of Garda
The Undying are made not born, fusing the bodies of the living with the souls of the ancient dead. This process has been honed over two-thousand years by the necromancers of Velos. The process shatters the personalities of the merged souls, but creates a being that is neither alive nor dead, pliable to the will of the necromancer that created it. As such, they are utilized as the Isle of Velos’ silent Watchers, among many other things. That said, the shadows of memories from both lives sometime reemerge, and such Undying may abandon their posts, eking out existence on the outskirts of humanity as they attempt to find purpose in their shattered lives.
