Apprentice is a Transitional Name that amplifies a mage's ability to learn and cast magic .

Role[]

The Apprentice is a Name that studies the mysteries of magic. The name is often seen in Praes, as a student of the Warlock. Both known Praesi holders of the Name have shown an extreme disinterest in matters unrelated to magic. It does not appear to imply a magical specialty, such as the Conjurer, only that the holder is a mage of uncommon power.

In Book 6, a new heroic Apprentice from Ashur appears, proving the Name isn't tied only to Praes, nor by default belonging to Villains.

Like Squire, Apprentice is a transitional "student" Name, for individuals clearly meant for magical greatness but not yet settled on a specific Role. It lasts only a few years at most before the holder finds their formative pivot and transitions again. Former Apprentices can become any of a wide variety of mage Names, such as Wizard, Warlock or Heirophant.

Abilities[]

The holder has increased magical capacity allowing them to perform spells with greater power, as well as weave spells with greater accuracy. Notable accomplishments of previous holders are: have performed magical soul surgery, restrained Fae royalty and demons, and created pocket dimensions.
