Into the Darkness...

Liches are creatures featured in Darksiders II. Resembling a cloaked spirit carrying an urn, Liches are capable of summoning spectral skeletons referred to as The Host to defend themselves. They can also use their urn as a melee weapon in combat. First encountered in the Judicator's Tomb, Liches become a frequent opponent for Death as he travels through the Kingdom of the Dead.

If Deathgrip is used on a Lich, it will use its melee attack as it is pulled towards Death, causing damage.

The fiends called Maelstrom could be seen as it's evolution but acts in Shadow's Edge. Instead of summoning minions to do their bidding, they launch fireballs from their urns that deal significant damage if not avoided.

Another version called Frost Weaver is shown in the Argul's Tomb DLC. After charging their attack, Frost Weavers can freeze Death in place with their frost bolts in a block of ice and deal significant damage if the attack is not dodged.
