Restless undead which savagely attack the living, draining their life energy to ease the hunger they feel for their own lost souls. A wight can be typically found near the place where they died, although they are not bound to these locations, and some choose to haunt tombs and crypts, jealously hoarding any treasures they may find.
Wights are often recruited by other, stronger undead, and living inhabitants of the Shadowfell. Their strength, and prowess in battle, or with magic, make them reliable lieutenants for these more powerful dangers.
The animated corpse of a once living creature, zombies are imbued with the barest semblance of life by their creators. These mindless creatures obey the commands of their creators, without regard to their own well being. Typically made from the corpse of humanoid creatures, these shambling horrors can be found anywhere, or any time, serving any being whom possesses the knowledge and capability to create them.
These horrific monstrosities are confused by many to be members of the undead. However, the truth of the matter is that the Bone Golem is a creation of dark magic, comprised of the skeletal structures of many creatures. These massive constructs serve their masters unerringly as guardians, or enforcers. Stabbing their foes with sharpened bone, they will utilize their great strength in combat, attacking with the ferocity of a creature who cares not for its own safety, or of those around it.
