The Arisen is the official and commonly given name for this race. They are also often referred to as “people of Zem” or more simply “Zems”. Their distinct appearance, combined with the fact that they have come back from the dead has earned them the nicknames “Returners”, “Zombies” and “Ironmen”.

Regardless of the joking and derisive nature of these nicknames, the Arisen are a force to be reckoned with and instil both respect into their allies and fear into their enemies. They are a powerful force within the Empire.

Zems were once tall, slim, and dark skinned mortals with amber eyes. Although their mortal bodies have long since withered away, mechanical parts and a face mark ensure that the Arisen continue to live and survive in Sarnaut. These changes and the adoption of mechanical parts in their bodies forms part of their deep history, and it allows those who died thousands of years ago to rise again.

The Arisen are full-fledged citizens of the Empire since the rule of Yasker. They have made much progress in the three centuries since their resurrection. They were once weak-minded slaves working in harsh conditions, deep in the Xadaganian mines. However, as time went on their intellects grew, along with the ability to provide their lands with Astral ships and mana stations. Monthly 300 to 400 women and men of this fascinating race "rise" to life in Sarnaut.

The Xadaganians and Orcs sometimes joke about their fellow imperial citizens, most often commenting about their coldness, concentration and detachment from life. Despite this, they are respected by all, even if their mummified flesh has been replaced by mechanical body parts or at least hidden under their clothes. They are completely accepted as citizens and are an important part of the Empire, contributing much to its common goals .
“Only a fool would dare risk offending an Arisen”

Simply said Arisens are scientists. Their names consist of two words - scientific title and actual name mostly derived from Egyptian mythology. Junior scientific titles are Semer, Sarang, Yaver and Sarbaz; senior scientific titles are Yasskul, Nomarkh, Negus and Nefer being the highest title possible. There is only one Nefer among Arisens - their leader and Great Mage Nefer Ur.
