When it so happens that a dragon lives long enough to forget its own mortality, it becomes a dragon lich. Once zombified, it will never know true death. Unless it is somehow reminded, the creature is doomed to wander for an eternity. This phenomenon is believe to be a product of the dragon's iron will, in combination with its startling vitality. Interestingly, there are recorded cases of dragons being freed from zombification. Whether this be achieved by some secret means, or by fatal force, the result is, of course, the same.
Is an empty vessel not waste, to be freely discarded? And if it is, then is a body bereft of the soul not the same? No matter how dear the friend, should they perish, and their soul move on, what's left behind is naught but a shell. But then... why am I so vexed? If this body is truly waste, they why do I despise the corpse flies that gather about it so?
