For the wizard from Ashan, see Tanis.

Tanir is a character mentioned in Might and Magic VI: The Mandate of Heaven. He was Roland Ironfist' court wizard. According to Roland, he was famed for his "insides out" spell, which he used to slay the king's enemies.


Tanir served Roland during the Second War of Enrothian Succession. When Archibald had been defeated, Roland asked Tanir to turn him to stone for his crimes. Tanir did as instructed.

Years later, Tanir accompanied Roland when the king investigated Lord Kilburn's disappearance after the Night of Shooting Stars. The group was attacked by kreegans near the town of Edenbrook, and five of the devils targeted Tanir. Sir Ragnar, one of Roland's knights, charged into the group and screamed like a barbarian as he chopped two of them down. The other three kreegans overcame Sir Ragnar, almost slaying him, but Tanir managed to kill them with the "insides out" spell and save Ragnar's life. Sir Ragnar was taken to the the Edenbrook house of healing.

The group was betrayed by Sulman, Roland's advisor, who sold them to the kreegans. Tanir, Roland, and Sir Ragnar were taken prisoner, while the rest were slain. Sir Ragnar later perished from his wounds, while Tanir and Roland were taken to Antagarich.
