It's impossible to take Red Mage seriously, especially if you're an ordeal.
|Wrath||Now that's a new one.|
There is going to be so much god damned paperwork.
|Wrath||Maybe I'll lie and say he passed the ordeal.|

|Cut to Black Mage behind the ordeal.|
|The ordeal falls.|
|Black Mage||Next time check for a pulse. Or at least make sure the guy isn't holding the blade with his armpit.|
|Meanwhile...Red Mage has a chalkboard of random "calculations" before his ordeal.|
|Red Mage||Thus, as you can plainly see, I have balanced every nuance of my character to perfectly complement every other facet.|
|Red Mage||I've exploited every rule in the book to eradicate the very notion of flaws.|
Look on my character sheet, ye mighty, and despair!
|Pride||There's still the matter of hubris.|
|Red Mage||Have you heard nothing I've said?!|
