These undead are dinosaurs animated and controlled by the magically-powerful Saurians to serve as protectors of their sacred territories. As dinosaurs die, or are slain, the Saurian necromancers transform the bodies of the fallen behemoths to create these specialized undead. Being possessed by the spirits of dead Saurians, the unextinct enjoy intelligence and supernatural powers far beyond those of a normal animated corpse.

Animated from the bodies of deinonychuses, clawtoed giests travel and hunt in packs, seeking living creatures to slay and consume. They move with a form of stealth so uncanny that these creatures cannot be seen or detected by technological sensors. As soldiers and adventurers have come to rely upon their technological devices for exploration and detecting approaching enemies, it is unsettling when they are suddenly attacked by a pack of ravenous undead that seemingly appeared from out of nowhere!
