The scarlet man serves as the head of the inquisition in the Mizlan. To the people of the realm, he has no name and he never shows his face. It is whispered in the Syriam-Wazdi that he is second only in authority to the Emperor, and some say he may even exceed the Emperor in power. He is known to be both extremely skilled with weapons and a powerful magic user.
The scarlet man was first encountered during the recruiting of Kazinnar and Rashanu into the Syriam-Wazdi. During this recruitment, he ordered Kazinnar’s family to be burned at the stake for heresy. Following the escape of Kaz and Rashanu from the Syriam, the scarlet man ordered the death of Rashanu’s family as well.
