A red wizard was a specialized Thayan mage who belonged to the Red Wizards of Thay. Would-be red wizards tended to focus on a specific school of magic. Very few sorcerers and bards decided to become red wizards; those who did were considered misfits.
Red wizards were able to resist many spells from their chosen school of specialization. Again, specializing in a specific school, these spells cast by red wizards would become increasingly potent. The most powerful red wizards were able to scribe magical Thayan tattoos upon less experienced casters.
