The Undead are enemies and conjured constructs in The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim. Conjuration spells can be used to summon undead creatures from Oblivion, while certain Restoration spells, such as Repel Undead, cause Undead creatures to flee or be instantly destroyed. Healing Hands is ineffective for undead creatures. The Staff of Zombies allows the wielder to resurrect the corpses of fallen dead. Those corpses possess the same skills, spells, and weapons of the once living being. In the expansion Dawnguard many new spells relevant to undead and undead enemies are added to the game.
