The High Flame Mage, @, is the Flame Mage quest leader. A high-level spellcaster, he is identical to the High Ice Mage. Surprisingly, he does not resist fire.

Proper Name Bug

Unlike other unique monsters whose names are titles (such as the Master of Thieves and the Oracle), the High Flame Mage erroneously has the M2_PNAME flag, which causes his name to be treated as a personal name. This leads to slightly strange messages such as "High Flame Mage casts a spell!" He shares this bug with the High Ice Mage; however the elemental mage quest nemeses, the Earth Mage and the Water Mage, correctly lack the M2_PNAME flag.
