Redeemed Servants are all that is left of the most prized slaves of the Ayleid sorcerors. While the Ayleid honored their pacts with Meridia, which forbade the usage of profane necromancy, they still longed to master the manipulation of the soul. Their most skilled artificers found a loophole to the laws of Meridia: rather than reviving a corpse by returning a soul to it, the Ayleid prevented the soul from leaving the body in the first place. Through skillful manipulation of magic, metal, and varliance, the mortal body could be twisted and reformed, turning it into a prison from which the soul cannot escape. Using this technique, the Ayleids would turn their favorite slaves in undying shells, forced to serve their will. While the Ayleids were entranced by the art of shaping and transmuting flesh, they also quickly tired of having their slaves leak blood and ichor over their perfect white floors. Most Servants are therefore masked and bound in simple metal armor, or swaddled in rotting silk. Their true corruption, and the perversion of their masters, is thus hidden from view.
