Resurrect

The honoured resurrect refers to those Nideans, usually of nobility though there are exceptions, that were resurrected so that they might continue to serve.The Jiroshi first used the resurrect to provide themselves with an army.  These resurrect are typically low intelligence, heavily modified and mentally compromised.  The Nideans borrowed Jiroshi science to return particularly valuable Nideans back to society, like royals, nobles and the like.  They are in much better condition and more mentally sound, as the augments are less crude, the procedure is typically done as soon as possible after death, and any that are not mentally sound are put down.Of Nidean resurrect, their organs are replaced and maintained regularly, and limbs are added to fill specific roles.  Due to mods, often a resurrect will fill his role better post-humously than he did in life.  Nidean resurrect are allowed to keep their possessions, and so sometimes are war capable with whatever weapons and armour, often powered, that they would have had in life.

Usually when a being dies, their soul doesn't depart until dusk, when one of the Valinor will come to claim it and bring it to the Horizon to be judged.  Those deemed good are permitted to stay in the horizon, those bad are cast to the under realms.Occasionally upon being reawakened on the material plane, a resurrect would retain the greater part of their sanity; after many years spent in servitude to the God of the Dead in his black palace, all without sunlight, food or water, most were turned into mindless drones or overcome with madness.  Those few that still displayed a measure of intellect could find themselves in positions of power among the living, some even resuming the station they held in their previous lives.  Sintor of Rishmane was perhaps the most famous example, who served in the Nidean Court for nearly 30 thousand years posthumously.

"The dead can serve in a way that the living will never be able.  Living men fear death, and who could blame us?  It's built into our DNA, our instincts, allowing us to become who we are.  But if we are to overcome our limits, we must overcome fear; be unafraid of death and unafraid of time.  We must no longer bow to fear, for when man is freed from fear he is freed from self-constraint. Man has always been afraid of that which he is unfamiliar; the things he does not understand.  We must seek to understand death.  We must become familiar with death.  We must die and be reborn, like the mythical heroes of Old Earth, and usher in a new generation without fear, without limits."
