* Necromancers
Like necromancers, liches are commonly perceived as being utterly evil and unredeemable (or if they can be redeemed, this likely would require them relinquishing their undead existence).
This is usually a choice of the individual and arranged prior to death. Lich typically surround themselves with undead minions. If the lich was a magician, they generally keep their powers. Sometime lich gain magical powers, even if they were not a magician previously.
