An Inferius (plural: Inferi) is a dead body, reanimated by a Dark wich or wizard, similar to a zombie. They have no free will, and cannot think for themselves; their purpose is merely to serve as puppets of the Dark Wizard who reanimated them. Few dark witches and wizards have succeeded in creating an army of Inferi, given the amount they would need to kill. Inferi are created through the magical branch of the Dark Arts called Necromancy.
