* AllDeathsFinal: Resurrection of a dead individual is flat-out impossible. Reincarnation, on the other hand, occurs naturally to everyone. It ''is'' possible to bind a soul to a body so that when the person dies they don't actually die, but this has... [[IAmAHumanitarian drawbacks]], and ultimately only staves off death of the mind for a while. [[spoiler: As it turns out there's a loophole with reincarnations. It ''is'' possible to ensure you are always born Awakened to your past lives as well as always ending up in bodies resembling your old self, effectively giving you BornAgainImmortality.]] This is knowledge nearly impossible to find, [[spoiler: and not only does it require extreme measures, but once someone did do it they had a very, very long time to work on ensuring it remained lost...]] [[spoiler: It's also possible to endrun the drawbacks of binding a soul to a body, at least in theory. The Adra dragon did it. Of course, she needed to consume other souls to do so.]]
