Blue Mage / Blue Sorceress

Blue mages have proliferated in the Wesnoth in recent decades. Although effectiveness of water-style battlemagic has been proven millennium ago, historically fire-style mages have fought on the side of islefolks and later on the side of Wesnoth folk, while water-style mages have served Wesfolk Lords and later many of powerful necromancers. So, water magic has been banned at Alduin Academy from the its founding. Only at beginning of the Silver Age wesnothian mages influenced by merfolk allies became interested in water magic again. New style of battlemagic was created. Unlike servants of dark mages, who mainly rely on cold magic, blue mages more interested in manipulation of water shape and aggregate state.
