In places suffused with necromantic energy, such as the necrograft facilities of Eox, parts of discarded corpses sometimes spontaneously come together to form the undead creatures known as carrion dregs, horrifying amalgamations of severed heads, arms, and legs arranged haphazardly around central cores of rotting flesh and sinew. These undead creatures are savage predators, instinctually driven to gather more lifeless forms to add limbs and heads to their own bodies.

No two carrion dregs look the same, and their attributes vary based on the limbs they have scavenged, making the vicious creatures highly unpredictable and even more dangerous. When hunting, multiple carrion dregs act in concert with one another to kill their prey, but they quickly turn to fight among themselves over the remains.
