The Resurrectionists were a clandestine group dedicated to the liberation of the Dominator from his enchanted prison in the Barrowland. Their machinations, which took place 370 years after the Barrowland was built, were detailed in the flashback biographic narrative of Bomanz in The White Rose. This occurred decades before the events of the The Black Company.
The White RoseEdit
The group was led by a trader from Oar named Tokar. Two of his siblings, Glory and Clete, as well as Glory's fiance Stancil, were important members. Stancil's father, the wizard Bomanz, did not realize his son was a Resurrectionist until it was too late. History would come to erroneously record Bomanz as a key member of the Resurrectionists.
The Resurrectionists worked in absolute secrecy to avoid arousing the suspicion of the Eternal Guard, a hereditary group of soldiers tasked since the Barrowland's creation to keep interlopers away. They also manipulated Bomanz into helping their cause.
When the Resurrectionists finally made their move to free the Dominator, many of them were killed in the ensuing carnage by the Eternal Guard or Bomanz himself. In fact, Bomanz was so opposed to the Resurrectionists that, during his desperate last-minute attempt to foil them, he killed his own son Stancil. It was soon revealed that the Resurrectionists themselves were manipulated by the Lady, the wife of the Dominator, whose scheme allowed their efforts to liberate her and the Ten Who Were Taken. But her husband remained imprisoned. She left the Dominator trapped to keep power for herself, and with the help of the Taken, she established her own rule, the Lady's Empire.
One of the Lady's first actions after her liberation was to exterminate all surviving members of the Resurrectionist movement "root and branch", to prevent them from releasing her husband in the future.
