Charles Upton Darrow, better known as The Necromancer, is a dark wizard ranked 42 on the MCO/Interpol International Supervillain Threat Rankings. He's classed as an A- threat. He has been active since the 1930s and tried to create a zombie army to help Hitler during the second world war. He also used a zombie army in the sewers during the first Boston Brawl. In the past, he has operated under other aliases, one of them being the Black Magus -- he is known to have faced the Mystic Six under that guise.
There is a theory that he may be a devisor as well, alternatively his holdouts may be purchased / plundered Mi-Go technology.
He wears armor that appears to be steel plate but is actually a Mi-Go organic compound. The breastplate is adorned with sculpted bones painted white. He wears a white skull mask and a purple hooded robe. The robe appears to be a Robe of Holding—at least, he pulls lots of stuff out of it.
His parents are Edwin Acton Darrow and Aseneth Ward Darrow, and he is Carmilla's uncle on her mother's side.
There are a lot more appearances that some enterprising soul could add
The Necromancer and most of the Children of the Night have a return match when Team Kimba has to return to Boston to give testimony at a Banner Hearing. They're reinforced with four other mercenaries. At the end, the Necromancer talks to The Bastard, and Vamp gives him some ideas for springing his minions from Roxbury C.
The Necromancer refines his plans for springing his minions from where they're incarcerated in Roxbury C.
He reflects that the best use for Hekate may well be to watch the Sidhe curse unfolding and taking her. It promises to be fascinating. Then he has a conversation with Major Bert Spaulding of Yashvilikov’s Mercenary Forces about the upcoming battle.
