Black Robe

The mages of the black robes draw their power from the moon Nuitari. The followers of the dark moon believe that beyond the walls of the tower daily struggles can and will bring brother against sister and order against order, but such is the way of things. While still disciplined enough to not cause wanton destruction just for crossing path with one, they certainly are not known for their kindness. Masters of corrosion and negative energy magic, black robes make quick work of their opponents, even using the flesh of fallen enemies to bolster their defenses.

The long hours spent in devotion to their magic, often at the expense of the physical health, make most mages very weak in the way of melee combat. Wielding powerful offensive magic is the best way for a black robe to be effective in battle.

A high intelligence is useful to a mage as their art requires intellectual study. Many spells also require elaborate hand movement, thus dexterity is also useful.
