Undead
Sometimes they come back. Undead beings are creatures who are no longer truly alive, but at the same time are obviously not dead. They may appear as pale humans who can hide easily among humans, but they are cold to the touch, and often as cold of heart. Some come back to avenge their deaths or the death of a loved one, some come back to seek that a wrong is set right, some come back because they can. Whatever the reason, the Undead hold great spiritual powers from beyond the grave.

PLAYERS AS UNDEAD
Undead creatures have all kinds of motivations and personalities, and come from many "heavens or hells". Some Native American Undead claim to be from the Happy Hunting Grounds, some Undead claim to be from Limbo, etc. Whether or not this is truly where they are from or if these memories are implanted in them when reentering our dimension to hide the true afterlife or for some other reason is unknown.

Special Benefits
Undead have come from the grave, a massive effort of mental resolve. They begin character creation with +1 Willpower in addition to the Willpower listed for their Style.

Undead may choose from the following Focus Maneuvers in addition to those allowed by their Style, as long as their Undead Background is equal to or greater than any Focus or special background requirement. They must pay the highest Power Point cost listed unless otherwise noted.

Special Weaknesses
Undead have no special weaknesses, making them very tough opponents.
