Resurrection is a type of necromancy which instills dead bodies with both life and awareness. All necromancy is black magic.

Specific Details

Resurrection is literally bringing someone back from the dead - the magician responsible must both infuse the body with life force and force the soul back in. The undertaking is impossible without a powerful blood sacrifice, often on the level of a life for a life. Resurrection is effectively a second chance at life for the dead - but they were still dead, and that changes a soul. Some can adjust to being alive again, but others are permanently traumatized.
