The Necromancer is a cloth wearing priest class of Arawn, lord of the underworld. Due to their allegiance to their dark master, they are granted spellcasting and combat prowess that is welcomed by Albion.
Unlike other casters, a Necromancer is powerless until it calls upon the dark magic of Arawn to transform itself into a fearsome servant controlled by an ethereal "shade". All their spells are cast through their servant (or pet). They may heal the pet, command it to cast spells on enemies, command it to attack enemies, etc.
