A Dark Mage is a bipedal, skeletal soldier with an oversized cape. Its eyes have a sickly green color, which are easily visible at night, unlike the rest of its body. It wields a staff, the top of which holds the skull of a fallen Dark Mage.

Like most skeletal monsters, Dark Mages are feeble but still dangerous. They are capable of overwhelming opponents with sheer numbers. They also feel no remorse or loss, giving them an advantage over more emotional creatures.

Dark Mages are capable of sorcery to empower their allies, but not without a cost. As their name suggests, their magic is dark and full of terror. Many that deal with the magic of Dark Mages feel a creeping sickness that eventually consumes them.
