There are many reasons for the dead to return to life in the world of Domus. Sometimes it is simply Ember corruption: when an area has a large concentration of Ember power it is unnervingly common for long-dead bodies to reanimate and terrorize the living.

Green Embers, known for its healing properties, can also be used to animate the dead. Necromancers have been known to raise veritable armies of these creatures to do their bidding.
