Scabaras mages are aggressive monsters encountered during the Dealing with Scabaras quest. They can be used for the Scabarites slayer assignment. They're difficult to kill due to other scabarites in the area also being aggressive. They use an incredibly slow magic attack (You are able to get in 4-5 hits with a Keris before they hit you again). It should also be noted that they can magically put out any light source, making you unable to attack back (except the Seers' headband which never goes out, but you still receive the "Your lights have been magically extinguished." message when they try to extinguish it).

Rarely during slayer tasks there may be a scabarite swarm summoned by the mage which will poison you.
