Breathe was an alteration spell of the southern magic tradition[note 1]. [1][2]


When cast, the spell allowed the caster or the target creature to breathe normally in a location or substance it would normally suffocate. [1][2]


In addition to verbal and somatic components, this spell required a material component. A cloth of any material was held over the caster's mouth while reciting the verbal component of the spell.[1][2]
