Red Wizards of Thay
Red Wizards are specialized magicians who hail from the Kindgom of Thay. Originally they were an organization whose members devoted themselves to mastering a single school of magic. Each school within the Red Wizards was lead by a "Zulkir" who was the most skilled among them.

In 1377 DR the then zulkir of necromancy Szass Tam siezed power and killed or exiled his peers, the zulkirs of the other schools. Consolidating his political power within Thay. Today Thay is still magocracy, albeit lead by Tam and with a distinctive focus on necromancy.

Thayan Ritual Magic
Ritual Magic has become rarer among arcane spellcasters in the aftermath of the Spellplague. The Red Wizards, however, are something of an exception.

Due to their extreme focus on one school of magic Red Wizards often delve deeply into ritual methods for their school. And with Thay's focus on necromancy, Red Wizards have become particularly adept at their favored school's dark rituals.
