A Magister (capitalized) is a battle type in the Metal Shadow universe. It describes an elemancer who employs powerful magic techniques for rapid long range support. Magisters are regarded as the most dangerous battle type due to the fact that they can employ magic for either offensive or defensive purposes, thereby fulfilling a wide variety of roles. Whichever strategy they choose, their presence on the battlefield does not go unnoticed.
Their main weakness is their poor physical bulk. Although they have spells to shore it up, a quick enough physical attacker can get to them before they do so. Their natural enemy is therefore any battle type with great speed and physical power.
