True Undead Zombies are created through the Zombie Mastery Invocation. They are almost invariably enslaved by their creator, and if such control is broken, they nearly always abandon their rotting corpse and pass on to the normal Cycle of Life and Death. On a few occasions, a zombie will become independent. An Undead being forced to prey on others for Essence.
Strong, hardy and difficult to kill, these beings make ideal servants and bodyguards. Of course, only the most brutal and heartless Voodoo societies, and similar Dark Covenants from other cultures, make use of such servants.
