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.[1]


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.[1]


The Red Wizards of Thay were credited with creating the acid rain spell, and some red wizards were known to use this spell as part of their large magical arsenal.[2][3]
