This spell functions as Revive Undead except as noted here. This spell can resurrect any undead that was destroyed by any means within 1 year per caster level, assuming it wishes to return and is able to (Mindless undead automatically are revived). In addition, the undead does not lose HD or character levels when revived with this spell. Finally, you do not need the remains of the undead but need to be able to unambiguously define the creature you wish to revive.
