LoreThe inhabitants of Aranoch have long practiced the art of preserving the dead. As a reverence to the deceased, priests fill bodies with preservative fluids, then wrap them in specially-treated cloth, and bury them in tombs below the desert's surface.
This mummification is believed to provide benefits for the deceased in the afterlife. Physically, a mummified body maintains its flesh and sinew for hundreds, even thousands of years.
Under Mephisto's manipulation, these honored dead have been summoned and bound with the spirits of malicious demons to fill the ranks of his undead army.
Instilled with eternal loathing for the living, Mummies are stronger and better suited for combat than the zombies, who due to their advanced decay, are weak and infirm.
Mummies are slow-moving, but can deliver powerful blows, often with the touch of poison from the chemicals used in their embalming.
Fallen mummies often burst asunder from their wrappings, leaving behind a poisonous cloud that the living should best avoid.
