The Undead

Undead Zombies are living corpses, still one with her souls or parts of it. They live of the energy and essence of the living. They rarely have the urge to eat raw flesh, but sometimes it cannot be helped. They need the flesh to restore their still rotting bodies. A Undead can only be created by Papa Ghede or the Barons since they are the Loa Family of Death. Mainly through black magic, using the depths of the blackness and the essence of life, give each of them the oportunity to create one living corpse every century. But most of the Loa don’t like the idea to give other creatures pieces of stolen life, because they’re responslible for these creatures and the Loa love their independence.
Brigitte and Samedi were always different. They were eager to spread their love for life and death, and Samedi saw in many humans the opportunity to give something back. But not all of Samedis Zombies are still alive. They are still threee “children”: Benedict became a guardian of the family and the girls servants, but in priority they all became a own little family.
