The Red Mage is a well-rounded spell caster whose repertoire can include a balance of both black and white magic.
Dawn of Souls Instructions

The Red Mage (あかまじゅつし, Akamajutsushi?) is a character class from the original Final Fantasy who can be selected as a member of the Light Warriors at the game's start. True to their name, the Red Mage is clothed in red. This class can use both Black and White Magic, as well as wield many different weapons and pieces of armor. Being unable to wield or use the highest level magic or equipment, the Red Mage is generally relegated to a support position; a jack of all trades, but a master of none.

After an event in which the party must retrieve a Rat Tail from the Citadel of Trials and return it to Bahamut, the Red Mage is upgraded to the Red Wizard (あかまどうし, Akamadōshi?). This class can wield slightly more equipment and learn magic up to level seven, and receives a new physical appearance, which is similar to the old appearance.
