With greater control over the powers of death, necromancers can extract the souls from dead corpses and use them as fuel. This can be used to transform innocent creatures into sinister pets. It is also believed the soul can be consumed with this spell and used to construct animated golems. While most golems made in this way soon vanish, it is rumored that more complicated rituals can make stone golems that are permanent.
