Skyrim:Court Wizard

1 byte added, 20:59, 21 May 2012
'''Court Wizards''' are the [[Skyrim:Jarl|Jarl's]] personal mages who research and study magic. They can usually be found in the Jarl's [[Skyrim:Castles|palace or longhouse]]. They sell a variety of [[Skyrim:Spells|spells]] from all of the schools of magic, and other items that are of use to mages, including [[Skyrim:Soul Gem|soul gems]] and [[Skyrim:Scrolls|scrolls]]. Their selection of available spells and magical items are bested only by the mages at the [[Skyrim:College of Winterhold (place)|College of Winterhold]].
In court politics they are the equals of [[Skyrim:Housecarl|Housecarl]]s, except on magical matters, but less important than [[Skyrim:Steward|Steward]]s. They are usually left alone by their Jarl, due to the Nords' suspiciousness and distrust of all things magical. They are also the only members of court that do have to relocate if their [[Skyrim:Holds|hold]] changes sides in the [[Skyrim:Civil War|Civil War]].
== Court Wizards of Skyrim ==
* The Jarls of [[Skyrim:Winterhold|Winterhold]] do not employ Court Wizards. This is likely due to the close proximity of the [[Skyrim:College of Winterhold (place)|College of Winterhold]].
* [[Skyrim:Aicantar|Aicantar]], [[Skyrim:Melaran|Melaran]], and [[Skyrim:Dravynea the Stoneweaver|Dravynea the Stoneweaver]] all belong to the Court Wizard faction. They are all replacements, but Calcelmo and Wuunferth are essential, preventing Aicantar and Dravynea from being needed. Melaran replaces Sybille in the event of her death.
* Depending on the choices you make during [[Skyrim:Blood on the Ice|Blood on the Ice]], Wuunferth the Unliving may become unavailable for bartering with.
