On rare occasions, a zombie retains intelligence and memories from its former life. Known as zombie lords, these undead creatures do not have their lesser brethrens' sluggish movement, and are generally a much greater threat as well.12 Some zombie lords are consummate undead who pursued their fates.3

Magus zombies are zombie lords animated from minor spellcasters who also retain their spellcasting abilities. While similar to liches in this regard, they are far less powerful.4 Some magus zombies pursued conscious life after death but lacked the power or resources to become a lich.5 Unlike zombie lords, they are also not necessarily limited to evil alignments.6
