The Dread are individual beings that are not quite alive or dead; the undead. A mix of zombies, skeletons and spirits, the Dread can be found all over the world, but are also thought of as myth. While not many have been seen, there has been an increase in recent times. All beings have their own agenda, searching the world to finish what they started, their own quest.
Most races do not know what they are and how they have become. This has led many races to be afraid of the Dread. And for good reason. With each being having their own objective, and being able to attack and deal damage to the living, they are a dangerous thought for many.
The Dread can manipulate the Graveyard; bringing spells and creatures back from the dead and getting power when creatures die.
