Red Mage / Red Sorceress

(image) (image)

Profession of fire-style battlemage, popularly known as ''red mage'', older than the Academy - ancient mages have trained that profession at the Royal School of Batllemages, which was reorganized into the Alduin Academy by king Haldric II. Red mages supported the Taming of the Wild and the Founding of Wesnoth and after half of millennium their role in life of the nation hasn't diminished. As soon as they receive their licenses, they sent to the battlefields of endless wars, which the Royal Army conducts on southern, northern and eastern borders of the country. Although red mages must serve only for five years, it's too hard for them to find a job in a peace life, so usually they remain at war for a lifetime, unless they get promotion. Among all mages red mages the most trusted by wesnothian soldiers as reliable and powerful allies.
