Sher'dan

After Mal Ravanal's defeat many of his henchmen hid themselves in the Kerlath, avoiding of capture in the wild lands. It was there they first met sher'dan'es - dark skinned mercenaries from the far south. In their homeland sher'dan'es were something between warlike tribe and military estate. Being hired once, they never change employers, faithfully and devotedly serving for whole their lives. Southern rulers and merchants highly valued sher'dan'es so latter got to Kerlath as guards of caravanes with silks and spices. Necromancers rapidly evaluate the value of sher'dan'es and arrange a hunt on southern caravans to kill all sher'dan'es and made skeletal warriors. Very thought of disobedience contradicts the way of thinking and traditions of sher'dan tribe so much, that even when skeleton sher'dan becomes revenenant, it continues to faithfully serve to necromancers. Gradually sher'dan'es became so integral part of undead armies that other skeletal spearmen borrow their tactic and equipment.
