The Lord of Spells, is a lesser deity who concerns himself with the advancement and preservation of the magical arts. Worshiped by all manner of spellcasters (and wizards in particular), the crafty deity acts as an adviser to the sitting deity of raw magic; he and Mystra share an amicable relationship akin to that of tutor and favourite student. Azuth most often appears as a white-bearded man wearing elaborate, antique clothing and wielding the powerful, gem-topped Old Staff.
