Most of the undead appear to be largely mindless, going through the routines of their duties without variation. However, there are reports that these mindless forces answer to and take orders from more powerful undead beings. So far, they have shown no interest in expanding their territories… only maintaining their boundaries, and holding on to what they have.
Creatures who die in or near the Wightlands are likely to rise again as undead themselves, leading to the popularity of cremation among those who live near these territories. Most rise as mindless undead who either wander aimlessly or join the older forces of the Wightlands. Some however, are known to rise in more active forms. Most of these are malevolent and hateful toward the living.
