Fugitive Mage

(image)

Not everyone who was expelled from the Academy becomes a necromancer - but most of them aren't better. Without a license, you can't work as a mage legally, but your talents are still appreciated by those who need special opportunities for committing a crime. As a result, most of the expelled mages end up in prison. But wesnothian prisons aren't disigned for to keep mages, so they escape and become fugitive mages. Their skills are inferior to professional mages and even necromancers, but despair makes them deadly opponents.
