"Stalker: A week ago... Something strange happened.
Persephone: What was that?
Stalker: I died."
― Tasakeru
"You know that line they feed you in boot camp, "You can rest when you're dead"? Complete bullshit!"
― Alcatraz, Crysis 2: Legion

The ability to use the abilities of an undead. Variation of Mythic Physiology. If the user loses their physical body, they gain Ghost Physiology.

Also Called

  • Anti-Living Physiology
  • Cadaverism
  • Cadaver Form/Mimicry/Physiology
  • Corpse Form/Mimicry/Physiology
  • Forsaken Physiology (Warcraft)
  • Necrotic Form/Mimicry/Physiology
  • Undead Form/Mimicry
  • Undeath


User with this ability either is or can transform into an undead, corporeal beings in mythology, legend or fiction that are deceased yet behave as if alive. A common example is a corpse re-animated by supernatural forces, by the application of the deceased's own life force or that of another being (such as a demon).

Users with this power lack physical weaknesses, such as pain, need to rest, vulnerability to environmental effects, etc, while some still need to consume various substances (blood, flesh, life-force). Being clinically dead, their brains and bodies are immune to most powers that affect living beings.



Types of Undead:

For a variety of corporeal undead, see here.



  • Supernatural Hunters are more than capable to handle the undead.
  • May be difficult, or impossible to revert back to a normal form.
  • May need to consume living flesh, blood, life energy, etc. in order to survive.
  • May still decay and rot.
  • Motor skills may be impaired.
  • May be unable to heal injuries.
    • User may lose limbs or not have limbs.
  • Not feeling pain may not always be beneficial.
  • Certain undead may have a natural vulnerability to certain substances, forces, or items which they are powerless to defend against (I.E.-sunlight, silver, fire, salt, jade).
    • In some mythologies, salt can be used to force transformation from this state.
  • Damage to the brain may result in an instant kill, even in this form.
  • Dark Arts, Necromancy and other forms of Magic may be used to control the user.
  • Undead Manipulation
