Types of Mummies

Tomb Watchers choose their mortal host from among those people who bear little protective instinct or love for their own lives and bodies. In their third life, these joined beings often become specialists in amulets of defense and shielding (of self and others).

Scroll-Bearers choose their mortal host from among those people who have underdeveloped personal morals or a weak sense of individual identity. In their third life, these joined beings often become hungry for knowledge (of themselves and of the world they inhabit) and intellectual challenges involving alchemy.

Night Suns choose their mortal host from among those people whose life revolved around deception, superficiality, and shortsighted folly; someone ruled by a desire to lie or cheat. In their third life, these joined beings often become celestial agents, who seek to repair the shattered life they left and drive others toward greatness.

Spirit Scepters choose their mortal host from among those people who was dull and selfish or plodding and self-centered in life. In their third life, these joined beings often become driven to creative brilliance and are inspired to create effigies tied to the spirit world.

Unbandaged Ones choose their mortal host from among those people whose darker half is frail and weak. In their third life, these joined beings often learn to embrace their feral nature and turn their violent instincts toward their sacred duty in almost bestial, but controlled, ways. They learn to master necromancy to enhance their undying nature.

Ordinarily, the flaws of both the ancient and mortal souls are excised and the resulting being becomes greater than the sum on its parts. If a joined soul is still found to be lacking, however, the pair are discarded and devoured by the Corruptor. Most recently, perhaps in desperation, these types of cases occasionally have the extra corrupted edges removed and the remaining souls are stretched thin to cover the gaps. Judged Ones do not often remember anything about their first life, have patch memories of their second life, and begin their third life confused and in pain. As such, they are also not as closely reliant on the power of the Web of Faith throughout the Middle East.
