The Standing Dead are zombie-like creatures created by Morisant in the chamber beyond the Alder Door of the Totem Wall. They were dry and bony, the little flesh that remained on their bodies were blackened and torrid, the little skin that had survived were brown and tense and completely dried out. Ordinarily immobile, the speed at which the Standing Dead would advance toward a target who entered the chamber is proportional to the level of fear from the victim. Unlike zombies, their thoughts cannot be detected by shadow charmers.
