Risen are not counted as dead until reduced to negative 20 hit points. Their regeneration is active even while they are unconscious.

The Risen are a terrifying race that has been spreading from a homeworld suspected to be closer to the 2 kiloparsec “dead zone” near the center of the galaxy. They have expanded north into the lower edges of the Perseus arm. Some years ago they displaced (or rather kicked out) the Durum’Kai who’ve been homeworldless ever since. A warlike race with a death worshipping culture, The Risen believe that to kill something in this life is to enslave it in the next, so they roam the stars looking to build their plantations in the afterlife, unifying under whomever can command the most brutal tactics for the highest number of captives. While The Risen have a different name for themselves, they’ve earned the moniker from disturbing reports of Risen warriors having been shot dead, only to rise a few hours later, angrier. The truth is that when a Risen sustains enough trauma to succumb, their body enters a hibernation mode. Natural Risen regeneration then kicks in.
