Wizard from Ultima IV manual
|Also known as:||Warlocks, Mages|
|First appearance:||Ultima I|
|Last appearance:||Ultima IX|
Not every magic user follows the path of the Eight Virtues. These dark mages use their talents to statisfy their greed for wealth and power, and won't hesitate to use any means to get what they want. Wizards are capable of casting devastating spells, and are often escorted by skeletons or daemons as bodyguards.
Rogue practitioners of the magical arts, Warlocks are the evil servitors of Mondain. The Foul One hath trained them in the casting of bolts of mystic energy and sent them forth to wreak havoc among the populace. Slay them if ye can, for the arcane arts should never be used for wicked purpose.
Not all magic users follow the path of Good. These evil renegade Wizards make very dangerous adversaries when crossed.
A mage on the road may become a boon companion or the last man you see. Do not trifle with a man in robes, for his mind will not show its dark weapons until they are summoned. Like all men of scholarly pursuits, the mage has a great warehouse of knowledge and should be treated with respect for it. However, evil mages do travel the lands. In felling them, you can gather various items of magic.
