Azaziah, the Crimson Mage is an ancient magician. His full name (or at least, the name he is going by when he encounters the Ghost Rider) is Azaziah Hornsby. Considered by most people to be a harmless old hermit, He has lived for centuries thanks to a globe of power he stole a long time ago.
- He enlisted Paul, Joe and Al to help him separate Ghost Rider from Blaze. He does this because he was dying and needs mystical energy to renew his life force. He believed that if Blaze and Ghost Rider were separated that they would grow weak enough for him to overwhelm them and take their energy for his own. However, Blaze destroys Azaziah's globe of power, causing him to crumble to dust.
