This does not include necromancers or such that turn corpses of fallen beings into something else, as they functionally are closer to spawners/summoners except for the need for something external to them to be around (be it corpses, plants to animate, or such).
Usually something like necromancers who re-animate the dead over and over again, but can have equivalents for others.

Depending how efficient they are, this may introduce a game mechanic that encourages players to destroy corpses.
