A powerful Master Necromancer

Master Necromancers are powerful Necromancers often driven into the service of vampires or ancient Necromancers. [1a] [2a]

Most necromancers are haunted and hunted men and women, who often end up as a snack for a vampire, a animated corpse for their master or as raw ingredients in a horrific ritual. Those that survive and grow in knowledge and skill are often caught between the mortal world and the spirit world, driven insane and twisted in form by their use of dark magic. [3a]

A few very powerful and knowledgable Master Necromancers are able to create a Necrofex Colossus. [5]
