A revenant is a visible [[ghost]] or animated corpse that returns to terrorize the living, usually people it knew in life. Unlike the [[zombie]], a revenant is not under another person's control, and has returned from the grave on its own for a specific and often personal purpose. Revenants react to [[silver]] and can only be stopped by nailing them into their coffin's with silver spikes.

History

A revenant is a visible ghost or animated corpse that returns to terrorize the living, usually people it knew in life. Unlike the zombie, a revenant is not under another person's control, and has returned from the grave on its own for a specific and often personal purpose. Revenants react to silver and can only be stopped by nailing them into their coffins with silver spikes.
