Defiler

One of two magic philosophies and practices on Athas (the other being preserver magic), defiler magic is based on fueling one’s spells by draining the energies of life forms around the practitioner. Due to powerful effects of their spells, ancient magi greedily wasted away all life found on the planet (livestock, vegetation, and peoples), plunging Athas into the present Desert Age.

Now, due to the dark reputation the defilers have painted for the general Athasian public, most citizens fear and despise defilers, for they know such spell casters only view the hoi polloi of city-states as the means and fuel they require to cast their next spell.

The most well known (and legal) users of defiler magic are sorcerer-kings’ templars.
