Ash Zombie

Ash Zombies can only be made from those that have died in a fire. All the surviving ash and bone fragments must be available to create the Zombie. Ash Zombies contained enough residual life force or death-aspected mana, that they can be reanimated with the Zombie spell. The Zombie will look like a person formed from ash. If the ash had blown away then the skeletal structure will be exposed. It is not uncommon to see an Ash Zombie with part of the skull or a with a skeletal limb exposed, Its also common for an Ash Zombie to have little or no skeletal structure left. Instead of the rotting smell of your regular Zombies, Ash Zombies smell of brimstone and sulphur.

What makes Ash Zombies desirable is the fact that they can be enchanted due to the fact that the ash will not rot like regular zombies and that they are almost immune to all but the hottest fires.

(see Suffocation, p. B436). This counts as an attack. Reach C.
