A little NSFW.
A celestial being cast into the forest to endure her endless life alone as punishment (for something something only thought so much about this). She was cursed to bring death to those who came in contact with her to ensure she lived out her punishment, and she sought to find a way around it. Thinking "the living-dead" was a wonderful loophole in her dilemma, she attempted to bring the dead back to life, but with what little power she has, this was the best she could do.
Hope I'm not too late. I wanted to try and take a different approach to the whole reanimation thing. Whether or not this is acceptable, I don't know.
