The Time Mage is a custom unit unique to Dungeon Keeper FX, first introduced in KeeperFX 0.5.0 alpha build 3080[1] and stable release 0.5.0[2] as a swappable creature along with the Druid, then later in build 3262[3][4] as a standard creature.

Added to test custom creature functionality, the Time Mage is a simple recolour of the Wizard by Trotim, with a bright red and gold robe, contrasting with the Wizard’s blue. The Time Mage also has a unique torture animation created by tsutomu_san, where his time magic is used against him.

Like his standard counterpart, the Time Mage is a goodly hero, and has access to a large pool of Creature Spells. While lacking the large array of damaging spells that the Wizard boasts, the Time Mage instead has access to more "support" abilities, such as Flight and Sight, very early access to Teleport and unusually for a spellcaster, Speed. Most interestingly, however, is that the Time Mage has unique access to the formerly-cut Chicken Creature Spell, making him a unique force in combat.

To make up for a less threatening pool of spells, the Time Mage has more health, strength, defence and luck than his counterpart. He isn't quite as good as the unparalleled Wizard in research, and is worse at scavenging, but his access to Speed more than makes up for this; once he has it, he becomes considerably superior to a non-boosted Wizard at research.
