|Occupation||Beasts of burden and vagrants|
In Throne, the dead are ubiquitous and harmless - though near mindless, they futilely mimic life. Mostly used as beasts of burden, couriers, or door keepers by the common and powerful alike, many take pity on them.
Persistent shades can be pulled and bound into dead flesh or clay to create servants and mounts. Some people do this to themselves as a kind of contingency plan should they die. The living dead are not truly sapient though.
They greet passersby, possibly harassing them for money, which it is against city ordinance to give them. This is because they cause all kinds of noise with their panhandling and are public nuisances. Nobody wants the dead on the streets, there is a popular ballot measure in several districts to have them banned completely. The attitude towards the dead is similar to some contemporary attitudes towards illegal immigrants. A wall will be built around Throne and the Umbral Thrice-Crowned Lords of the Undying Masters are going to pay for it.
