Summon Imp temporarily summons a friendly demon that is able to cast spells, such as Magic Missile. One can (when the demon is visible) command the demon to either guard the character or kill a visible creature.
Why anyone would want more of these troublemakers is a question often asked when this spell is taught. However, one advantage of this spell is that the imp is only summoned temporarily. This means the necromancer need not worry about conserving the imps life. Many necromancers thus swear by this spell as their replacement for Fireball.
