Notes Criminals and the vice-filled betrayers of the Suns holy light can stray off the path of the dead when they go to be judged by the Emperor of the Cosmos. Such souls attempt to return to life, or try to lose themselves in the underworld, hoping that they will remain unfound. Should the day come, however, that they are returned then some, rather than being smited by the Holy Light of the Emperor, they are given to Seelth Capersane, the Guardian of the Firebound. Captured by fire, and bound by flame, those undead monstrosities who are shown something less than the Emperors wrath become the Firebound. The Firebound are flaming skeletal humanoids, tatters of flesh hang loosely, burning, from their ribs, and whilst they carry no weapon their hands are dangerous enough for their burn brighter than the rest of their body. The Firebound are only ever sent as a retribution from the gods for the most heinous of crimes such as consorting with unwholesome enemy gods, or killing the nobility. http://www.nikkeffingham.com/runequest/undead.htm
