Undead

Except for the obvious differences (lack of skin, hair, a working circulatory system, and so on) the undead army are very much like any living human army. They have military ranks, a chain of command, and a set of marching orders. The bulk of the army is made up of once-living humans, though there are tales that when this force marches into battle, the animated skeleton of a once-grand dragon marches with it.

There is much speculation about the undead of Tyria and what their goals might be. Many believe that they are the remnants of Orr, those lost souls who were so disturbed by the destruction of their home in the Cataclysm that they refuse to pass into the next life. Others believe there is a more sinister force motivating these creatures, a malevolent being who has raised the resting dead to do his bidding. Some even say this mysterious leader is a powerful lich lord who rules them all from behind the front lines. But most of this is just campfire tales and barroom gossip, for there is no one who lives today who can claim to have seen this creature in the flesh (so to speak).

The Guild Wars Manuscripts

The undead incorporates a vast majority of the reanimated remains of corpses bound to Tyria, as well as souls that have not passed on to the Mists, whether bound by force or self-will. Though most undead seen are of human origins, any race can become an undead.

Most non-soul undead seem to remain in small groups under various stronger undead. On occasion, the undead will be bound to the will of necromancers, whether they are also undead or still living. Rarely they will be in large numbers, and when that is the case, they are always under the control of a very powerful undead necromancer. Often, this undead will be a lich, such as Palawa Joko.
