Resurrectionists. The name is a cruel joke, amusing only to the twisted minds of murderers and graverobbers who claim it as their own. Resurrectionists reanimate the dead, but their magic results not in a body that has been restored to life, but rather one that has been brought back as an undead puppet. Their practices are particularly appalling to the people of Malifaux, who consider the Resurrectionists to be one of Malifaux's greatest threats. That some of the most terrible monsters this world knows were once their former friends and family is a grim realization.
Humanity has a long tradition of honoring their dead. In Malifaux, the fact that Soulstones recharge in the presence of death presents difficult existential and religious questions, but the Resurrectionists are blatant in their desecration of human life. The reanimated dead serve only the selfish, unconscionable goals of these foul necromancers.
