The term magician is the colloquial name of an offshot species to humanity, with the scientific designation of Homo sapiens ex magicus. They first appeared in the Mazes at around the same time halflings did, approximately 413 years ago. They are sapient, nearly indistinguishable from humans (to an extent, see below), and are genetically compatible with humans, halflings, and by extension, youkai as well. However, they are not considered a civilized race, as extremely few magicians seem to tolerate the busy, social life of towns and cities. Most magicians are solitary beings seeking to practice and hone their skills in relative peace, and are largely found in the UA, living semi-nomadic lives.

At first glance, magicians appear to be completely human, right down to having the same range of heights and weights, can wear human clothing and armor, and frequently carry weapons and other types of gear. There are, however, several indicators that distinguish magicians from humans, some of which are less obvious than others. Outside of the ability to naturally cast spells, or the stereotypical attire of a hooded robe and iron-shod staff, magicians possess a few distinctive physical traits, such as burned fingertips (presumably from repeatedly casting elemental spells), or prominent and bulging veins on the arms and hands. Magicians also seem more likely to have rare eye colors, such as red, purple, black, or golden. Some have reported that certain individuals seem to exhibit a visible "aura", particularly when casting spells, though it was never confirmed to be real, and may have been the result of lighting or optical illusions.

Least obvious is the life expectancy of a magician, which appears to have no known upper limit. Magicians have three life 'stages' instead, referred to as "apprentice" (young to adult), "magician" (mature), and "magus" (elder).

Apprentice magicians, or simply apprentices, as they are called, are magicians in their early life stage, ranging from ages 0 to about 30 years.
