- "It seemed my method of entering the physical realm was not altogether original. But where had these beings come from?"
Notes[edit | edit source]
Revenants are likely based on the Revenants of European folklore.
Raziel meets several different types of Revenant in-game, but only refers to them once, after their first meeting. Prima's Defiance Guide further divides the Revenants into 5 'groups'; The first three (the Human Revenant, Vampire Revenant and Hylden Revenant) are named according to which species corpses they have possessed. Prima goes on to name two other types - 'The Possessed' - who are still living, but possessed hosts; and 'The Transformed' - who are living hosts that have been used up by the possession and whose Flesh has been transformed by it. (Similar to Mortanius' transformation at the end of Blood Omen )
