Ramazith Flamesinger was a sage in Baldur's Gate on the Sword Coast in the mid–14th century DR.[2][3] He was one of the more noted personalities of the city by 1358 DR[2] and was described as a "Sage Extraordinaire" by Volo around 1366 DR.[4]


Ramazith's area of expertise was in marine life, both botany and zoology, and especially sea herbs and ixitxachitl and other intelligent marine creatures.[2][3] Ramazith collaborated with fellow sages Alauthym of the Moonshae Isles and Nenemith to research the habits of ixitxachitl was ongoing in the 1350s DR.[5] 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.[3]


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.[1]

He abruptly disappeared one day. Although no one knew exactly what transpired, a popular rumor was that Ramazith had gotten romantically entangled with a nymph, leading to his demise.[1]


Considered dashingly handsome, he had a lean and athletic body and a beard.[3]


Ramazith was an excellent swimmer and diver, better than almost any other human. In his time, he'd dived down to a number of deep sunken wrecks without any magical assistance.[3]

He was also a great dancer.[3]


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.[1]

Prior to his tower, Ramazith's home and office in Baldur's Gate[4] was a rundown house near the Three Old Kegs inn, where he often went for evening meals.[3]


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.[3]

Several times, Ramazith was observed speaking with elves who'd just come from Evermeet, but he refused to talk about it with others.[3]



  1. 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.
