I am a sorcerer. I have magic.
Merlin to Arthur[src]

Sorcerers are humans who practice magic. Because magic is outlawed in most kingdoms, they are hunted and persecuted throughout Albion.

Types of Sorcerers[]

The different types of sorcerers include:

  • Druids: A peaceful and secretive people who worship nature. They typically use magic for good, but some choose to abandon their pacifist teachings and become renegade in response to years of oppression and persecution.
  • Seers: Sorcerers with the ability to see the future in dreams or visions.
  • High Priestesses: Extremely powerful sorceresses who served the Old Religion. They were the chief servants of the Triple Goddess and held dominion over other magic-users. Male equivalents are High Priests.
  • Dragonlords: Men with the ability to speak in Dragon Tongue and tame/command their spiritual brothers, the Dragons. They were almost entirely wiped out during the Great Purge; only one survived.
  • Spirits: Apparitions of deceased sorcerers that can appear to, interact with, and possess the living.
  • Catha: Priests of the Old Religion who were exceptionally skilled at using magic to torture.
  • The Disir: Women chosen from birth to act as the mouthpiece of the Triple Goddess. They were the highest court in the Old Religion and their judgment was final.
  • Bendrui Priestesses: Initiates who trained to become High Priestesses but failed to meet the exceptionally high standards.
  • Renegades: Sorcerers primarily driven by vengeance, self-serving desires, or other dark motives. They tend to have no regard for the lives of others, the guidelines of magic, or the laws of the Old Religion, and often use dark magic to achieve their goals.
