The Necromancer is the nameless antagonist who is responsible for the Retreat Festivals across the land. He heads a dark army of undead creatures who he uses to hunt down any living creatures in towns, which he then reanimates. The Necromancer may be a sorcerer, a warlock, or even an evil priest, and very little is known about him. It's been theorized that he is a human, or someone else without infravision, because he didn't spot the party who were to hunt him down in the dark. It has been counter-argued that he just doesn't care. The Necromancer is not definitively a male.
