The Returned appear shellshocked when they realize they’ve come back from the dead. They tend to be disoriented, confused, and—naturally—still in pain from whatever trauma killed them. For long-term illnesses or congenital diseases, they’d usually been relieved that it was finally over. And if it had been a sudden, violent death—say, a murder or a heart attack—they often suffer from PTSD. Aside from the rare easy-to-repair accident, usually they beg to be rekilled, which feels like an awkward violation on everyone’s part. Nine times out of ten, Returning is more of a curse than a blessing. I rarely recommend it.
