Years ago, the Acolyte mice brought necromancy to the Kingdom. Their undead creations rose from the depths of the Catacombs, with the sole purpose of destroying Gnawnia. Hunters’ lore states that the first-ever MouseHunter devised a way to turn the spells of the Forgotten Book against the Acolytes and banish them to another realm of existence, somewhere between the dead and the living. Had it not been for Plankrun’s heroic efforts, the small village of Gnawnia may never have become the prosperous town it is today. Now that they have returned, the Acolyte mice are amassing their creations, preparing to achieve their dark destiny: the eradication of each and every MouseHunter!

Acolyte mice have been found to be especially attracted to Runic cheese, to the point that any other kind of cheese will simply not suffice.
Acolyte mouse weaknesses differ from other mice in The Forgotten Mice group. Forgotten type weapons are very effective against Acolyte mice; Shadow and Arcane weapons are less effective, and the rest are ineffective. As such, the Ancient Box Trap is currently the best trap that works against Acolyte mice, being a Forgotten type weapon. Alternatively, Hunters who do not have the Ancient Box Trap but still would like to capture an Acolyte Mouse may consider arming the luckiest Shadow or Arcane trap setup available.
