The Necromancer is a large skeleton that wears blue turfs, a cape with blue stripes near the end, a golden belt with a blue gem in the middle, has greenish eyes, and wears a gold crown-like headwear. Necromancers always hold a staff with a blue orb placed upon a stick.
Necromancers use their staff to summon zombies and armored zombies to attack players. They summon mobs much more often than the Nameless One. Should the player get too close, the necromancer will immediately flee until they are a safe distance from the player, and then summon mobs again. Necromancers also rapidly fire damaging laser orbs from their staff to players. The laser orbs deal less damage than the zombie's melee attack but more damage than the skeleton's ranged attack, and they also knock the player back.
They also have a rare idle animation where they will throw their staff in the air - as if playing with it - then catch it and strike a pose.
