Red Mage

Obtained from the Water Crystal in the Walz Tower

The concept of a red mage is great. Two Mages for the price of one! They can do white magic and black magic. But only in limited levels. Their knowledge of spells extends only to level three making them all but useless later in the game, and their stats, well, they stink. The only reason to use these guys after getting level four white or black magic spells is to come a bit closer to the 999 points you need to be able to double cast spells. It’s a long road.
