Revenant browbirds are only available through auctions. An item to transform characters into revenants is planned but not yet available.
Revenants are powerful heroes and warriors who died in battle or through some tragedy that were then resurrected and given a new soul. They now live a nearly immortal "life", frozen in a state of decay.
Undeath exists in many species, often caused by spells cast by death aspect wielders. However, bringing someone back in such a way where they aren't just a mindless zombie is something reserved only for death ancients. Those who master the death aspect can allowing trap souls through magical means as the most advanced form of necromancy. The process results in the revenant losing most memories of their life. In modern times using death magic for this purpose is frowned upon, as in the past there were many who abused the power by resurrecting others for selfish reasons without concern for how the revenant would feel. Regardless, there are still a scattered few out there who still create revenants.
The revenant type, to some, has been considered something like an urban legend due to how rarely they're seen in their true forms in crowded areas. Revenants themselves will often employ whatever means they can to conceal their undead nature form the general public as to not spark fear and ire from the common folk. The fear likely stems from revenants of the long past who had used their strength to spread destruction through the astral oceans at the command of those who created them. There was even a time where many revenants were raised in order to fight in a massive was across the stars against the palatine organization and browbird civilization, unknowingly fighting against their former allies. As revenants regenerate from most injuries and have an endless lifespan, some revenants who took part in that war would still be alive today. Many of these survivors live at the distant edges of society trying to atone for what they had done.
Those resurrected as a revenant are often without any memory of who they previously were, leading some to go on a quest to retrace their past. While others will simply seek out a way to truly end their existence without any regard for the past. There are also revenants who go on living their new life without a care, happy to be given a second chance.
While any species in the Celestial Seas can be raised as an undead being, Revenant is the specific name the browbird liches and powerful undead are called. This category would, in fact, include true vampires.
