Μάγους are people skilled and educated in the use of μαγεία. Female μάγους are often called μάγισσες, while male μάγους are called sorcerers. Only rare individuals have the potential to become μάγους and many of those with this potential are doomed to madness. Unless the individual in question — also known as a Πηγή — learns to control their power quickly, he or she may end up a half-insane, slobbering oracle. That is why schools of sorcery were created, where talented children study for many years, acquiring knowledge and mastering magical skills. Because of their powers, μάγους age more slowly than ordinary people. They can extract magical energy from the four elements, transport themselves long distances and heal, as well as kill, in the blink of an eye. They have extensive scientific and political knowledge; in the latter respect, many μάγους are the equals of rulers.
The words "mage", "sorcerer" and "sorceress" are used mostly to refer to people trained in magical academies like Aretuza or Ban Ard and is rarely used to refer to magic-wielding druids or priests (especially the latter, since they claim to be given their powers by the gods).
