The Unrepentant Dead is the spirit of an ancient, evil Makai shaman. The shaman took precautions before death so that his spirit would linger in Limbo, ready to protect his tribe. When northern Ierendi islanders plundered the tombs of his (long-extinct) tribe, the Unrepentant Dead arose as an Undead Spirit and slaughtered the offenders. Not content with such justice, he cursed them and raised them as undead wights, then sent them back to attack their former villages.

Since then, the Unrepentant Dead has gathered a large number of followers, mostly spirits of Makai warriors, who inhabit corpses in the ancient burial grounds in the Nyx's Post Pile region. A large number of mindless dead -- skeletons and zombies -- round up the Unrepentant Dead's army.
The Unrepentant Dead aims at reclaiming the archipelago for the Makai -- albeit for the undead Makai. He therefore opposes Donatello "the Black" Matrongle and his pirates, and attempts to persuade the Makai mummies to join his crusade.

The Makai spirits of Limbo's Nula have ostracized the Unrepentant dead. He and his followers rarely enter Limbo, except in emergencies, since they cannot rely on the animated dead there.
