A type of undead. Similar to a zombie in that it is a reanimated corpse, but revenants retain portions of their personality and some amount of intelligence as seen by their motivations for returning, and it is said that revenants return of their own volition, rather than being reanimated by magic or caused by a viral outbreak like zombies.

1. Evil people who terrorize the living after death, in particular those they knew during their lives (as told by William of Newburgh.)

2. The dead who were wronged in life which harboured such a resentment for the crimes committed against them even in death that they continue to walk the earth, perpetuating the crimes committed against them until they are vindicated (as seen in the folklore of Rotten Johnny Reb.)
1. That bastard was so cold hearted, even death didn't want him. And now we have all the joys of digging the sod out of his grave to put an end to his new found life as a revenant.

2. It's horrible how that revenant died.. It's almost enough to make you empathize with his mass killings.
