Unjointed are born of a pureblood dark elf being resurrected by aberration magic not of necromancy. The user implants an egg into their corpse, as the egg is the conduit for the magic. This egg sappy the life energy from the resurrected corpse until it hatches an Unjointed. The inhabitants of the far realm have done this practice for centuries in secret and some Unjointed have even indulged in these practices from time to time as well. Xonn Xivver and his enclave are the oldest enclave in the entire plane. Xonn himself is a little over 700 years old, he has accomplished this by creating artificial joints and has found out that after 200 Unjointed don't age. The reason others have not tried this is because none have been able to, artificial joints is Xonn's closest guarded secret.
