Archilus is a vampire character from Heroes of Might and Magic IV.
Archilus was once a very wealthy man, but he spent it all capturing a powerful vampire and forcing it to make him one of the undead. When he was through, he cast the vampire who sired him into the sunlight. Now, this cold and patient man has an eternity to reclaim his wealth.
Powers and abilities
Unlike vampires from earlier iterations of the Heroes of Might and Magic series, Heroes IV vampires do not appear to start with any specific skills. However, as a Necromancer, he knows basic Death Magic and Occultism, and is most likely to learn Death Magic and can also learn Order and Chaos Magic on the side. He is unable to learn either Life or Nature Magic without initial basic training in these skills provided through alternate means.
