Masters of the dead and black magic, Necromancers who are able to truly conquer the power of the spirit are given the title of Soultaker. Unlike Sorcerers or Archmages who handle element magic, Soultakers handle black magic. Persecuted since the imperial period, many of their skills were once rendered obsolete. It was believed that those skills could not be recovered; however, instigated by the resurrection of the Archmage, a number of black magicians embarked on a journey in search of a lost vision. The handful that returned were resurrected as Soultakers.
