** In ''Discworld/WitchesAbroad'', Mrs Googol is a voodoo priestess who says she only raises zombies when there ain't no alternative, like when the house needs repainting. She is accompanied by Saturday: "He was - or, technically, had been - a tall, handsome man. He still was, only now he looked like someone who had walked through a room full of cobwebs." [[spoiler He's also the late Baron of Genua - yes, Baron Saturday.]] It's mentioned that Discworld voodoo can't bring someone back from the dead unless they have serious UnfinishedBusiness they want to come back for.

[[TheBadGuyWins It worked]], as Angelina stayed loyal to Winter even after breaking out of the trance.[[/folder]]
