Black Mage / Black Sorceress

(image) (image)

Black magic is the reverse side of light magic, so although shape of black spells is looking like complete opposite of light spells, their effect is almost the same. Just like light mages, black mages are able to heal wounds. They also able to call terribly destructive spells. They able to restrain spells of other sorcerers. They able to prolong their lives - as light mages also able to do all of these things. Based on this, black mages can't understand why their activities are prohibited by law of most civilized countries when white mages are universally respected. Actually, pursuit of dark mages have begun so long ago, that the true causes of the conflict was forgotten long ago.
