A Wizard is a Weir who has the supernatural ability to perform charms with words. They are regarded as the strongest Weir. The first wizard and ancestor of all wizards is Nicodemus Snowbeard, and was the leader of the plot to assassinate Lady Aidan Ladhra. They were formerly the ruling Weir under the tenants of the Original Covenant. Wizards are very wary of Elicitors, as Elicitors are able to drain a Wizard of all of their magic, as well as be unaffected by magic of any kind. Wizards are often associated with the color gold.
