Xul, the Cryptic Necromancer, is a melee specialist hero from the Diablo universe.[1] From the recesses of the eastern jungles comes a man cloaked in mystery. As a member of the secretive Priests of Rathma, or the Necromancers, Xul fights to preserve the delicate balance between order and chaos. Using powerful death magic, Xul will sap the strength of his enemies, block their escape, and direct his spectral scythe with lethal accuracy. Those who fall before the Necromancer find no peace even in death, rising again as skeletal servants bound to do their master’s bidding.[2]

Xul is a sturdy spellcaster that cripples enemies with Necromantic magic. He summons Skeletal Warriors from the corpses of enemies.[3]

Background[edit | edit source]

Diablo (franchise) This section concerns content exclusive to Diablo universe.

The necromancer, as his name implies, is an unseemly form of sorcerer whose spells deal with the raising of the dead and the summoning and control of various creatures for his purposes. Though his goals are often aligned with those of the forces of Light, some do not think that these ends can justify his foul means. Long hours of study in dank mausoleums have made his skin pale and corpselike, his figure skeletal. Most people shun him for his peculiar looks and ways, but none doubt the power of the necromancer, for it is the stuff of nightmares.[4]

Xul was the necromancer in the group of heroes who battled Diablo and his brethren during the events of Diablo II. He survived the journey, and later trained an apprentice named Mehtan.
