Serve magic and serve me. Magic is power; keep it secret and keep it safe.
- Nuitari's Dogma
Cousin of Lunitari and Solinari, Nuitari is the devouring darkness, the patron of the Black Robe Wizards of High Sorcery. Nuitari's primary ambition, like that of his cousins, is to spread magic - preferably black magic - throughout the world. Nuitari also works to bring more mages to the Order of the Black Robes.
There is no clerical order devoted to the worship of Nuitari. Rather, he is the patron of the Order of the Black Robes, instructing them in the ways of magic. Black Robe followers of Nuitari are taught that magic is secretive, and that its power is to be coveted. Those who use magic to gain power are often seduced by Nuitari, who promises them that they will gain powerful magic faster if they worship him, rather than the careful Solinari or the cautious Lunitari.
Black Robes do not observe holy days for Nuitari, although they look forward to the High Sanction of his black moon every 8 days. At that time, their power is at its height. Like all other mages, Nuitari's followers eagerly await the Night of the Eye, for the magical power of Krynn is at its height on this night and the Black Robes are able to cast their spells at the zenith of their power. Nuitari's black moon is but a hole in the stars for those who do not worship him. For his followers, the moon's black radiance is brighter than that of the silver or the red moons.
Nuitari is the son of Sargonnas and Takhisis, and the twin brother of the goddess of the sea, Zeboim. Nuitari detests Sargonnas, who dislike magic and those who wield it. Nuitari distrusted his mother, Takhisis, whom he suspected of trying to subvert his followers, convincing them to worship her. Nuitari's mages are opposed to the goals pursued by the followers of Solinari, but they will put such differences aside and work together if the very existence of magic is threatened.
