Battle Wizard

From Warhammer - The Old World - Lexicanum
Jump to: navigation, search
A pair of Battle Wizards in the service of The Empire.

Battle Wizards are strange and mysterious individuals who wield awesome magical powers, and are privy to secrets beyond the ken of normal folk. They are Men, mostly found in the service of The Empire, but occasionally serve other masters or simply themselves.

The Wizards are trained at the Colleges of Magic [3a] and are very sought after by the Elector Counts, for they are amongst the only ones capable of challenging and combating enemy sorcerers or shamans.

History

The first Battle Wizards were trained by the High Elf Teclis at the request of Magnus the Pious in order to better combat the Forces of Chaos.

Learning Magic

Most Wizards are taught at the eight colleges of magic in Altdorf but there are other official insitutions, some far older than those in the capital. [2a]

Magic

Oath of Allegiance

All licenced wizards of the Empire must swear an oath to Sigmar's Empire, the Emperor and the Elector Counts before they can begin their studies and they must renew it annually. This ceremony is held on the evening of Geheimnistag at the Imperial Palace in Altdorf although those who cannot travel to the capital have three months to renew the oath. [2a]

Although the Electors often request aid rather than demand, any who refuses can quickly find themselves losing influence and friends and even barred from studies. [2a]
