Nercomancy-demon transfer

Magnus Hainsly transfer a demonic spirit into a human body.

Me necromancer. You... dead.
Magnus Hainsley[src]

Necromancer was a type of magic practitioners adept at manipulating the dead. Undead creatures such as zombies, vampires, ghosts, and flesh golems were vulnerable to necromancy.[citation needed]

Magnus Hainsley was a notable necromancer, known for his ability to transfer demon spirits into human corpses. Amy Madison used a zombie army when she attacked the Slayer Organization Italy headquarters and maintained Warren Mears in animation. In his full form, Eyghon had total control on the dead. The Sculptor had control on his army of flesh golems.[citation needed]

Powers and abilities[]

And the dead shall rise! Just 'cause I say so.
―Magnus Hainsley[src]
Necromancy control

Magnus immobilizes Angel.

Necromancers had the ability to exert physical control over any kind of dead and undead creature, including vampires, ghosts, and zombies, being capable of manipulating their actions — such as speaking or moving. At one point, when Hainsley took control of Angel, he claimed that he could dust him without a stake. He also made Spike appear in his house from a distance.[citation needed]

Necromancers also had the ability of raising the dead and transfer spirits, either human or demon, into dead or undead bodies. In the case of transferring spirits into sentient undead, according to Spike, the original consciousness of the host body would cease to exist.[citation needed]
