Do the undead have any rights under the law?
It seems like a silly question when considering simple skeletons and zombies, since they are more like constructs than people (though that does make me wonder if they would be considered property, heh).
But vampires and liches, for example, aren't mindless automatons. They're people with unnaturally lengthened lives, unless they are required to die in order to become undead, in which case anyone bound to the bindstones is also included in this question, which could be restated as "do you have rights under the law after you have been dead and raised again?" And since the answer to that must be yes, does that mean undead like vampires and liches should be brought to trial rather than destroyed on sight?
I guess another way to ask is, "How are undead different under the law than Dragoncalled or ordinary people? Are they different at all?"
