A warlock is a wizard who has, either purposefully or accidentally, broken at least one of the seven laws of magic.


Warlock is a catch all term, including necromancers, psychomancers, people who have killed mortals with magic, or practiced black magic. Barring extenuating circumstances, a warlock found out by Wardens, is summarily executed, or killed in the attempt of escaping apprehension.
