Wizards of the Light Order

The Light Order is one of the eight Colleges of Magic who train Wizards in The Empire. They are also known as the Order of the Wise. [4a]

Light wizards are specialists with light and brightness, and as a result have are regarded among the wisest men in the Old World, their counsel being sought from the other nations of men. Light wizards are the most skilled of all the orders in medicine, healing and protection. Of all the orders they are the most renowned for conducting ceremonies and rituals.

Magisters of the Order are often known as White Wizards or Hierophants and many aspects of the hierophants’ trappings, titles, and rituals more closely echo the magical practices of ancient Nehekhara rather than Ulthuan [4a]

History

In 2507 IC Egrimm van Horstmann was revealed as a secret worshiper of Tzeentch as were many senior hierophants, the remaining Lords Magister elected Vespasian Kant as the new patriarch of the order. [4a]

Life in the Order

In the Order, apprentices are called acolytes and are more numerous than in any other. Not only are there more of them, but they are typically recruited younger and moulded to fit the requirements of the Order. Acolytes form choirs that sing to keep the walls of the Pyramid of Light in Altdorf intact, or help senior wizards to manipulate Hysh in different ways. Very few of them ever rise further than the position of senior acolyte. [4a]

Novice hierophants may live in the world beyond the college during their Wanderjahr and the first couple of years afterwards but as they learn spells that need to be fuelled, they usually get one or more acolytes assigned to them, to help them channel Hysh. Some return and lose themselves in theoretical study but others become exorcists and a few act as advisors to noble courts whilst fewer still make a career as battle mages in the Imperial armies. Senior hierophants can rise to the position of Lord Magister who form an advisory group for the head of the order, the patriarch. [4a]
