The Red Mist is a condition that affects many Taranians. It is most evident in warriors, for they are more likely to experience it during the stresses of close combat. They describe the experience as losing control of their wits. It is a rage that makes them a passenger in their own bodies. Some, like the Named of Northern Tarania, spend years learning to control it; but there are a handful of warriors who have discovered how to bend it to their will. The most famous person to achieve this is Tarek Grimbard. Scholars at the University of Abergaron propose that the Red Mist is just one of a number of conditions that have been inherited from the Hen Rai.
