Wizards/Witches (also called sorcerers/sorceresses, mages, etc.) are ancient beings who possess a large variety of magical powers.
Wizards take on the common appearance of humans. They also wear armor when in battle and even when at ease.
Powers & Abilities
Wizards are well known for their capability of performing enormous feats of magic. Most are also immortal, thus they can live for thousands of years and no mortal weapon (especially a few magically-crafted ones) can kill them.
Wizards also appear to be stronger and faster than ordinary humans, as well as possessing invulnerability.
Wizards are vulnerable to having their magic depleted if they use too much of their power all at once. This leaves them losing most of their magical powers and being unable to use magic beyond simple parlor tricks (if they have some magic left in them). Some wizards also apparently to have the ability to absorb the magical powers of other wizards when in battle.
- It's unknown if wizards are truly human, as it was occasionally pointed out that Merlin and Morgana have been around long before humans were even created.
- Merlin even states that Morgana is presumably more ancient than he is, despite her previously being his apprentice before her fall into darkness.
- Some humans (with enough willpower) can absorb some magic from wizards and make their magic their own, like what Claire Nuñez did while fighting for control of the Shadow Staff from Morgana. Though it's unclear if this would make Claire a true witch.
- Most wizards own familiars, who often assist them in the art of magics.
