Draugar (plural form) are a form of undead found primarily in Saxa lands. Necromancers are the most likely to rise as a draugr, for Hela grants her evil servants undead status as a fi nal reward for a life-time of service. Former spellcasters raised as draugr cannot wield magic, but
their supernatural powers more than compensate.

Despite looking like zombies, draugr are intelligent, strong, and agile. A draugr’s physical form can be helblár (“death-black”) or nár-fölr (“corpse-pale”).

I think these fellows from Eureka fit the bill nicely. Sicne they are not truly zombies, the fleshless look differentiates them from their brainless cousins.
