That body was never his to begin with.
Some fun historical knick knacks:
- Two styles of the evil eye are featured here –
The one of Ancient Rome
And the one of Turkey (the nazar amulet)
- It’s already speculated in the comments below, but I may as well mention the set-in-canon lore here:
Mora is a lemure, an Ancient Roman angry spirit not accorded the respect of proper burial and mourning rites. The vampire myth also mentions not being properly buried as a cause of someone returning as a vamp, so combining the two (ghosts and bloodsucking revenants) together…you get TWiDI’s take on vampires.
Zeynel isn’t a lemure, or an angry spirit. He’s just a ghost with physicality, unlike Mora.
