Silver Mage / Silver Sorceress

(image) (image)

Silver mages are closed organization of mages. In ancient times they was outlawed for use of forbidden magic, but their help in the fight against Lich-lord Jevyan and in the Wesnoth Founding was so significant, then they was allowed to practice magic without reporting to the Academy. Over the past centuries mages of the Academy and silver mages settled their differences sufficiently to Academy allowed silver mages to recruit gradautes to their ranks. Surely, when the Council decided that, it hoped to penetrate the secrets of Silver Mages at least partly. But latters conduct selection very carefully, so they invited only the most talented of archmages and probably used some methods of memory erasing, so neither of their secrects were revealed. Very little is known about the organization of silver mages as about their methods. Goals which they they publicly declare are hunting for mages-outlaws and confiscation of magical artefacts. Besides silver mages are suspected of involvement in kidnapping of scientist-mages, which was engaged in cutting-edge researchs of space and barrier magic.
