The Terrible Six were the original necromancers. They created the Skeletal Army, the Zombie Army, and many other foul creations. They were:
1. Sark the Fearsome – first to gain lich-hood. Was destroyed by Nikolas the Lich Slayer
2. Hain – First to attempt lich-hood. Was not able to make the transition.
3. Leo the Dark – most powerful Lich known. Killed Nikolas Lich Slayer and Nikephoros the Good at the Catastrophe, before being destroyed by Mikelos the Avenger.
4. Irene the Unsteady – Fled with the field of battle with the remains of the Skelatal Army back to the Witch Kingdoms. Fate unknown.
5. Merk the Treacherous – Was the first to push the idea of the undead armies to Phokas, and first to rebel upon the Decree of Destruction. Fate unknown.
6. Nikolas the Bad – First to ally with Orcs. Pillaged the Core Lands in the confusion after the Catastrophe with a combined Orc and Zombie force. Fate unknown.
