Background and Story

An adventurer searching for treasure deep within Frosthold Fortress, Red Mage is able to use Necromancy and Sorcery; both of which are forbidden magic that cannot be used by anyone else.

He is only recruitable, and playable, for the duration of Frosthold Fortress. Most of his equipment slots are locked and he will immediately disband if you attempt to leave the Fortress, making his true motives appear even more suspicious.



  • Upon leaving Frosthold Fortress it is revealed that Red Mage is in fact the Minion Spite in disguise.
  • In the original Super Famicom release of the game, Red Mage had the same sprite as the Ghost from Final Fantasy VI. This is because the friendly ghost was a recycled and recolored Red Mage sprite. If you fought the minions before even going into Frosthold Fortress, you would clearly know that it is a Minion of Saruin/Spite, since both Red Mage and the Minions share the same overworld sprites. The PS2 Minstrel Song uses a different sprite, but it's still clearly obvious to the player that Red Mage is Spite.
  • In the Ultimania story, "A Bard's Tale", Red Mage's identity is found out as soon as the party reaches the sword. The party was playing along since they saw through the disguise easily and Freilei kills Spite with the Obsidian Sword itself.
