Before Combat He casts false life and mage armor every morning. Before combat, he casts stoneskin, shield, fly, and protection from good, in that order.

During Combat He tries to keep his undead allies in front of him, activating his negative energy conduit aura to bolster them, and making ranged touch attacks with spectral hand. He then flies out of sight, casts greater invisibility, and flies back in to continue his attack, using his lesser silent metamagic rod to cast silent spells at foes.

Morale He fights to the death. He asks no quarter and if captured refuses to talk to enemies, preferring death.

Base Statistics Without his spells, statistics are AC 15, touch 14, flat-footed 12; hp 69.
