A sorcerer (female sorceress) was any individual who participated in the Great Mystery from birth and, as such, was trained to use sorcery. The terms magician and wizard were also used. Those born with powers often began as mere performers of stage magic, aspiring to actually touch the infinite power of the Great Mystery by becoming true sorcerers. However, only a very few achieved this end. Most sorcerers had eyes of uncommon depth and color.
