"Oh! You scared me, I thought you were an undead!" ― Necro
Necro is a character and an item in The Messenger. He is a light blue Phobekin found in the Catacombs and is the leader of the Phobekin quartet that repairs the bridge to Forlorn Temple. After Ninja drops into the Catacombs, he automatically speaks to Necro who then returns back to Forlorn Temple. Necro wields a hammer as his tool of choice.
- For the main story, see Phobekins.
After Ninja reaches the Catacombs for the first time, he automatically speaks to Necro.
- Necro's name refers to "necrophobia," a fear of the dead.
- The "Devolver Public Access: The Messenger-Sneak Peek" video depicts a beta talk portrait for Necro. The beta talk portrait icon was a slightly more detailed version of Necro's overworld sprite, while the final talk portrait icon is a highly-detailed close-up of Necro's face.
- If "All Phobekins" is selected as a New Game + item, the conversation with Necro in the beginning of the Catacombs is skipped, as he and the other Phobekins are already at Forlorn Temple.
