This and the fates of the thousands of undead buried at The Cathedral of the Deep that emerge from their graves bears horrific implications for those within the silent pine resin packed burlap sacks ominously hanging throughout the Settlement.

A last hint about the nature of the Deep is given by the Farron's Undead Legion boss soul weapons, the Wolf Knight's Greatsword and the Farron Greatsword,  since both swords deal a bonus damage against Aldrich and the Deacons of the Deep.
