For most of the game, Dread Seraphs will lie dormant in their sepulchers, though there presence on a level causes corpses to rise from the dead as zombies or skeletons. Once the character kills the Wizard of Yendor or picks up the Amulet for the first time, the Dread Seraphs will wake up. When the character next visits a level containing a Dread Seraph in a sepulcher, and earthquake will occur and a chasm will open, freeing the Seraph. Dread Seraph Chasm.png
