A Mentor or Guardian is a Guild magician who takes the responsibility of a novice. This includes helping with their studies and magical learning. A Guardian is a graduated magician who wishes to take care of a novice. The magician usually announces which novice they choose at the Acceptance Ceremony or at the start of an academic year. However, this is not always the case. A mentor can be an older novice who wishes to help a younger one.
