'''Wizards''' are [[magic|magic users]] who are born that way. By definition, wizards have the ability to learn other people's spells after they awaken.
 
They may or may not also have spells of their own.<ref name="2014-09-11">{{EGS-link|story2|1947|2014|09|11}}</ref> There is a rare type of wizard, called a [[Seer]], who do not get spells in the first place.<ref>{{EGS-link|story2|2223|2016|08|05}}</ref>
 
 
For wizards, the process of learning a spell is really simple: they just have to see it (possibly multiple times), but don't need to make any extra effort. It may be possible for them to learn some spells without actually trying.<ref name="2014-09-11">{{EGS-link|story2|1947|2014|09|11}}</ref>
 
 
Being a wizard, similar to having innate [[Magic Affinity|magic affinities]], is caused by having the right ancestors.<ref>{{EGS-link|story2|2335|2017|04|14}}</ref> While it wasn't confirmed as being caused by genes, it either must be or it behaves similarly to being so.
 
 
When both parents are wizards, their kids are guaranteed to be wizards as well.<ref name="2017-07-14">{{EGS-link|story2|2373|2017|07|14}}</ref>

== Verres Wizard note ==
 
The {{EGS-link|story2|2193|2016|05|25}} implies that both [[Noriko Verres]] and [[Edward Verres]] are wizards, but it took until the {{EGS-link|story2|2373|2017|07|14}} to finally get confirmation.
