Caligati Necromancer (5e Creature)
From D&D Wiki
Small humanoid (caligati), chaotic evil
Armor Class 10
Saving Throws Con +1
Quarterstaff. Melee Weapon Attack: +2 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 4 (1d8) bludgeoning damage.
Finger of Undeath. The caligati targets the corpse of a Medium or smaller beast or humanoid within 10 feet of it and animates it, causing it to stand up immediately as a zombie with 1 hit point. The creature remains animate for 1 hour, after which time it collapses and dies.
Most caligati believe, "If you can't beat 'em, join 'em." Caligati necromancers, on the hand, believe that if you beat them they should join you. While most caligati are fairly open and obvious about where they learned their skills, the necromancers are strangely secretive about where they learned their magic. Because of this and the nature of their magic they are feared by other caligati, and shunned by almost all. They tend to not fight in formation, and controllers don't try to order them around. Most will just follow from behind while commanding their zombies to defend their allies, grabbing another zombie from amongst the corpses if one falls.
