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.[1][2] 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]
