The Magisters are a group of blood elf mages and are one of three factions in the government of Silvermoon City and all of Quel'Thalas. They are led by Grand Magister Rommath, a master of Arcane, Fire, Frost, and Holy magic. Out of the three main factions within Silvermoon, the Magisters are probably the oldest, as the Highborne exiles who originally conceived the nation were mages, first and foremost, before they began to compose their ranks with those trained in archery and martial combat.
The Magisters' exact origin and time of ascension to authority are unknown, but it is presumable that they existed maybe before, or during the founding of Quel'thalas. They have been Silvermoon's top authority on all things pertaining to magic, and have been in possession of a vast reservoir of knowledge on all things arcane, for many years.
After Kael'thas's departure to Outland, the Magisters have taken a more direct approach to gaining power within Silvermoon's political climate. Their authority on magic has led to them having an easily establishable sense of power over the addicted masses of Silvermoon and thus, allow them to control many citizens with ease. They are true to the Jingoist philosophy that elves have always practiced, although after the Third War, they have begun to enforce it rigorously.
They've also constructed large, green crystals (known as The Burning Crystals), filled with demonic essence, all around Silvermoon, so that the blood elves may easily restore their energies, as well as to empower the various extravagances that Blood Elves enjoy indulging in. The need for these has become apparent as many of the Arcane Sanctums in the land have either begun to weaken or malfunction due to the various problems caused by the Scourge Invasion.
There are several ranks within the Magisters, each one a title that showcases their mastery of the arcane, as well as their importance within the order.
- Grand Magister - Leader and overseer
- Magister / Magistrix - A position similar to a Magistrate.
- Arcanist - A middle-ranked mage, with a slight amount of authority.
- Apprentice - A newly inducted member into the order.
