Necromancers are wizards who focus on mastering the connection between life and death. Skillful Necromancers can sap your life energy away, raise and command the dead, and possess a great deal of this all but secret and forbidden knowledge.

By manipulating the energy flowing through all living beings Necromancers are able to affect others with potent magic while using the stolen life energy as their own. Though they aren’t always evil, the knowledge they seek is often outlawed.

Most Necromancers keep their work a secret and rarely share their true intentions. Sometimes the power and influence they achieve earns them great renown, like it did for Feprix Crow, Puprix The Unliving, and Shuverra Nightshade.
