A wizard is a male human born with the ability to use magic. Wizards are the male counterparts of witches. Magical ability is an inherited trait that can be passed from parent to child, though some wizards come from non-magical families. To perform magic, Wizards often use a staff, though can perform magic without a staff too.

Wizards and witches maintain a society entirely separate from non magical society, with their own culture and traditions. Non magical people are generally unaware that wizards and witches exist, and wizards and witches prefer to remain hidden. Wizards have their own schools; there are thirty schools for sorcery, magic and witchcraft scattered throughout Britain, mostly in isolated places. These schools include Camelot College and Moonridge High School for wizards. There are magical university, Weirdsister College and Primrose Hill College.

Many aspects of non-magical society are evident in the magical one, though wizards and witches tend not to use modern electronics and technology; they use magic instead. Wizards have different fashions, too; wizards wear robes, and younger wizards tend to dress in more 'normal' clothing, like what non magical people of the same age wear.

Social Customs and Traditions

In 'Better Dead than Co-ed' Miss Cackle says you should always greet wizards on foot. "We witches sometimes have a clear advantage. Wizards aren't so good at flying."

In the 2017 series, wizards greeting each other for the first time put their hand to their forehead, bow, and say "Well met".
