Ramazith Flamesinger was a sage in Baldur's Gate on the Sword Coast in the mid–14th century DR. He was one of the more noted personalities of the city by 1358 DR and was described as a "Sage Extraordinaire" by Volo around 1366 DR.
Ramazith's area of expertise was in marine life, both botany and zoology, and especially sea herbs and ixitxachitl and other intelligent marine creatures. Ramazith collaborated with fellow sages Alauthym of the Moonshae Isles and Nenemith to research the habits of ixitxachitl was ongoing in the 1350s DR. Often, sea captains of large fishing fleets consulted him about where they could find the best fishing spots, for particular species and at particular times.
Ramazith hailed from Durpar. He spent many years at sea, working as a sailor and becoming something of an expert in matters of the ocean. He turned to magic to further his own studies, and eventually became a skilled wizard. Never known as a wealthy man, he apparently discovered something extremely valuable in the ocean depths, because he was suddenly able to fund the construction of the lavish Ramazith's Tower.
Considered dashingly handsome, he had a lean and athletic body and a beard.
He was also a great dancer.
Ramazith's wizard tower was a famous landmark in Baldur's Gate, though some regarded it as an eyesore. The six-story brick tower was built in the architectural style of his native Durpar, to remind him of home.
He was also infamous as a local ladies' man and some said Ramazith had killed some angry husbands in self-defense in his time. Others believed he was a Harper or an agent of the Red Wizards of Thay.
- ↑ Ramazith was originally described as a chaotic good fighter and sailor. The video game Baldur's Gate portrayed him as a lawful evil wizard. Murder in Baldur's Gate partially addresses this discrepancy by explaining how Ramazith's interest in the ocean led him to study magic.
