A Revenant is a ghost or animated corpse in medieval belief, often returned to terrorize the living. Those who lead greedy, self-serving lives were likely to return as the walking dead. Revenants were also known to return to enact revenge (for example, against the one who murdered them,) or to give warnings.

In "A Christmas Carol," Ebenezer Scrooge's deceased business partner Jacob Marley returns as a Revenant.
