Tactics
Before Combat Lucimar tries to have false life and mage armor cast on his person as much as possible (the copies of these spells in the above spell list are in addition to the ones he already cast). If he expects a fight, he casts shield.
During Combat Lucimar initiates combat with an empowered fireball and (if time) an enervation or two, hoping to weaken opponents before engaging in physical attacks. Whenever possible, he enhances his bite attack with spells such as empowered ghoul touch. If wounded he uses vampiric touch to regain hit points on his next attack.
Morale Lucimar is bent on seizing the vault. If the PCs overwhelm him prior to the adventure, he begs for his life, offering to aid them with what he can and flees at first opportunity. If facing the PCs after their fight with Drazmorg, Lucimar fights until he has 10 hit points or less, at which point he tries to use dimension door to get away. If prevented from escaping, he pretends to shake off the negative energy and gain control of himself again, at which point he begs them for help (suggesting taking him to a healing temple or a powerful druid), hoping to get a free moment later to get away.

Editor's Notes
This NPC breaks a lot of rules. A whole lot. Reminds me a bit of old first and second edition characters from Dragon magazine in that way. It's an undead with a Con score. It has weird HD (4d10+5d4 and he's a 9th level necromancer), and polymorph underwent huge changes to boot. It has been converted as closely as possible however.
