Red Feather Battlemancers
Red Feather Battlemancers utilize a devastating mix of flight, light armor, and devastating arcane firepower.
A figure in a robe of red feathers appears on the battlements. Her dusky tattoed limbs and raven hair drip with gold bangles. She opens her eyes and they flare with golden light that spreads to the runes on her skin . She holds aloft her curved blade. The robes become metal wings, the bangles golden armor. She soars above the battlefield and rains fire down upon her enemies.
The legendary Red Feather Battlemancers dominate any arena of war that they enter. Each Battlemancer adopts their own unique style built around the mantle of red feathers that give them their names. Founded by Callisto Redwing, this loose guild of mages specialize in soaring above their enemies and blasting them with arcane power.
Every mage seeking entry crafts an item or article of clothing with red feathers as a part of the initiation process. The feathers must come from a mighty beast or magical being that voluntarily gives plumage to the supplicant. The ritual of initiation fails if the feather was stolen or taken by force or murder. The most sought after feathers come from griffons, pegasi, couatls, and the phoenix. Naturally red feathers and feathers coming from powerful beings are the most valued.
The feathers become red and metallic during the ritual and allow the battlemancer to levitate or fly when activated.
