Skeletons walking about are often used to depict a personification of death, The Grim Reaper being the prime example. Skeletons are often reanimated by necromancers. They are generally only capable of acting on simple instructions. Most use weaponry like swords, clubs and bows, although skeletons with magical capabilities are also found.
