Don't forget that resurrection can (almost always will - player charcaters and a few heroes are the exception) have a *huge* effect on the psyche of the resurrectee - check the "re-life sickness" bit in ST 43. It's likely that your resurrectee will 1) figure they have nothing to fear and join Humakt, 2) become a pacifist and join Chalana Arroy or 3) be depressed all the time, wear black with silver jewelery, never get a tan ('cause the sun is evil, hiss), play with eyeliner, and generally be oh-so-Goth (or maybe Emo, I don't understand these kids nowadays).
