The Undead

Those ghoulish freaks who hide in graveyards and dark coffins-- ah, I'm not talking about goths or necrophiliacs. These are honest undead, once-living creatures who were raised from the dead to live again. Vampires, ghosts and zombies-- there's nothing wrong with getting a stiff from stiffs, right? Keep in mind that Fae Soul should be rewarded for sleeping with any of these races...

Skeletons

Skeleton ♀♂ [Eyes: Glowing] [Construct:Bone] [Skin: None] [Hollow]
Skeletons hide in closets and tombs, protecting their territory and seeking revenge on their killers. Their bones have a strange repulsive force that makes snapping them harder than knocking them far away.
Skeliquid (Skull Slime) ♀♂ [Eyes: Glowing] [Indoskeleton] [Malleable] [Nucleus: <Liquid>] [Skin: <Liquid>]
Skeliquids are an unusual breed of skeleton that is trapped inside the body of a slime. Two poor saps fused together to form a bigger, larger sucker with a frightening visage. This is also a kind of Slime; see Constructs for the counterpart which is a slime with a skull instead of a nucleus.
Skelemental ♀♂ [Eyes: Glowing] [Construct: <Element> + Bone] [Skin: None] [Hollow] [Latent Talent]
Skelementals have a magical power that allows them to resist magical damage. It has long been rumored that Skelementals are mages who died as virgins, and so the common approach to dealing with Skelementals is to give them a box of condoms and keep them away from the Metagame.
"Maybe they'll pass on and stop bothering the living if they get laid! Great sage my ass." - Overheard from a cranky drunk at a pub.
Flying Skull ♀♂ [Wings: Bat] [Construct: Bone] [Aura: <Element>] [Hollow] [Psychivore]
Flying undead vermin that fill dungeons and attics and are nigh impossible to get rid of. They're rarely intelligent and feed off of secrets that the victim hasn't told anyone. The more dangerous the secret, the more bold and dangerous the Flying Skull swarm becomes. Telling the secret will force them to leave.

Ghosts
Species Sex Traits

Ghost ♀♂ [Incorporeal] [Transparent] [Ectoplasm] [Weightless]
Calm undead that never quite passed on, ghosts are nearly all murder or suicide victims. On the one hand, it was a painful and traumatic experience. On the other hand, being undead is a relaxing, responsibility-free job. Many ghosts opt out of haunting anything other than the local mall or cafe.
Poltergeist ♀♂ [Incorporeal] [Invisible] [Ectoplasm] [Telekinetic] [Mischevious]
Poltergeists are mischievous ghosts who died before they were mature enough to understand death, and seem to think that the afterlife is just an incredibly long game. Poltergeists developed the ability to move objects with their mind to make up for their lack of a body, and they also developed an array of mind tricks to play hide and seek more effectively. These are uncontrollable due to their immaturity. When Poltergeists come to terms with their death, they become a Ghost but retain their [Telekinetic] ability.
Cursed Grudge ♀♂ [Indestructible] [White] [Organs:Sludge] [Malleable] [Obsession:Revenge]
Ghosts that have taken physical form after being abused and killed by their parents. Their desire to kill their family members ends up extending to anyone they can see. Highly dangerous, it's impossible to kill a Grudge without first pacifying its rage... you may best think of Grudges as the mortal equivalent of a Demon Lord. When a Cursed Grudge has their thirst for revenge quenched, they become a nightmarish demon best left to the imagination.
Earthbound Spirit ♀♂ [Incorporeal] [Transparent] [Ectoplasm] [Bound: <Location>/<Object>] [Tail: Ball & Chain]
Earthbound Spirits come in all flavors, but with one primary difference to other kinds of ghosts-- they're stuck haunting the location or object they were obsessed with in their life. They have a much more 'my pace' attitude to them, and the lack of any contact means that their encounters with Fae are sure to excite them greatly. The only way to sever their chain of attachment is to get them to willingly give up their obsession to another person, possibly even allowing them to move on.

Zombie ♀♂ [Brain:Dead] [Humanoid] [Decayed] [Immortal] [Weakness: Brain Trauma]
Zombies, aside from the smell and rotting flesh, are like any hapless person thrown into their half-dead body, albeit one with a bit of brain damage. Aside from a craving for the blood, meat and sex of others, not much is different about their personality from when they were alive, and they can speak with difficulty. They can only be killed by trauma to the brain, and are functionally immortal. They can survive sans body.
Desert Mummy ♀♂ [Organs:Jars] [Cursegiver] [Regenerative] [Weakness:Fire] [Bilingual: Runic]
Carrying around several jars which contain their organs, Mummies from the desert are known for their protectiveness and proclivity towards sarcophagi. Despite being mummified, their skin and remaining sexual organs have been restored quite well due to the regenerative liquid that brought them back to life. They have a habit of cursing whomever steals anything from them. Including kisses.

Vampire ♀♂ [Teeth:Fangs] [No Reflection] [Pallor] [Weakness:Holy+Sunlight] [Bloodsac] [Form:Bat]/[Form:Mist]/[Form:Shadow]
Vampires are known for their universal beauty and thirst for blood, but these mortals infected with demon blood have more powers than that. The fledglings developed a bat-form, not only able to access the [Bat] racial template freely but able to transfigure back without cost. The elites, meanwhile, get a mist form or a shadow form that they can access freely under the moonlight and in mana dense locations. Vampires are deathly afraid of holy objects and sunlight. Holy items will kill them, but sunlight will just make them incredibly drowsy and unaware of their surroundings.
Vampire + Template ♀♂ [Teeth:Fangs] [No Reflection] [Pallor] [Weakness:Holy+Sunlight] [Bloodsac] [Bonus Race: <Race>]
Vampires are a super-race, which means that they can be layered on top of another race-- for example, Vampire Catgirl or Vampire Werewolf. You could even be a Vampire Vampire! But that would be silly. Don't do that.
Dhampir ♀♂ [Teeth:Single Fang] [No Reflection] [Pallor] [Weakness:Holy] [Bloodsac]
Daywalkers are the offspring of vampires and humanoids. They have less weaknesses than a vampire, but also have less strength. Most Daywalkers struggle with physical tasks and are bedridden a majority of the time. Their single bloodsac-compatible tooth is very awkward to use, leaving a lot of Daywalkers to accidentally give hickies instead of draining blood.

Lich ♀♂ [Latent Talent] [Phylactery: <Object>] [Subrace: <Undead>][Aura: Unholy/Death][Heart: Phylactery]
Liches were former necromancers who sought power at the cost of their body, turning themselves into undead. Their heart has been removed from their body and turned into an object known as their Phylactery, an object they have to keep care of or they'll die. Liches have the appearance of an undead from any category, and the only signs of being a lich are their chest cavity and their unholy aura.
