Black Mages are sentient, man-sized magician dolls mass-produced as weapons of war by a now-forgotten magical force.
Physically, Black Mages having a black aura surrounding his visible outer skin, glowing yellow eyes. Universally, they are naturally adept at the casting of spells - especially offensive spells.
Originally, they were an almost robotic race, designed exclusively for war with very limited lifespans. But as time went on, new prototypes were created making them smarter and more self-aware, eventually giving them the ability (if they chose) to leave the bloody conflict and never look back. On Faerun, there is a town of Black Mages which did this - giving them the ability to live in peace and practice magic to benefit themselves and their town.
While many are content with this life, some do go out as adventurers within the large universe.
They are typically associated with the United Galactic Alliance.
