Necromorphs are reanimated corpses. They retain a dim and mechanical semblance to their previously living selves. A growing body of necromorphs has created a kind of rotting underclass in Clockman, where they are used for menial tasks such as transcribing, cleaning, and so forth.

'Necromorph clauses' are becoming more and more typical in debt contracts. They represent a form of corporeal foreclosure by which indentured servitude may be extended well beyond the natural life of the borrower, and are an attractive option when considering borrowers with no children, property or other collateral. While necromorphs have been around as long as arcana, their present day invocation in legal agreements is the canonical example of the intersection of magic and law made possible by voidal science.
