A wizard is said to be someone who uses magic derived from a supernatural, evil, or occult source. Today, magicians and wizards are common figures in the works of fantasy and fantasy literature, as well as role-playing game. When it comes to wizards specifically, they are often used in the form of wise old men who act as mentors, such as Merlin in the King Arthur stories.
