This article is about the hedge wizard NPCs.

Description

A pudgy hedge wizard:

Hedge wizardry is the name used to describe the ancient style of magical arts that was in use long before the rise of magical institutes and institutionalised magic.  Some of these wizards roamed the Disc in search of power, others did the same striving to achieve a greater understanding of nature.  Although rare these days, some of them still exist.  Despite the lack of regular meals, this hedge wizard has managed to maintain a healthy rosy complexion and a plump body.
He is not in good shape.
He is standing.
His skin looks as though it has been covered with several layers of a chalk-like substance, although the head seems not to be covered.
He has a medium bone shield floating around him.

An old hedge wizard:

This is one of the few wizards who, for some reason, a lingering taste for heterosexuality perhaps, or a rare grease allergy, has chosen to forsake a life of celibacy and food at the Unseen University, Ankh-Morpork's (and the Disc's) most renowned school of the magical arts, in favour of a life of solitude in the woods.  This particular wizard looks like he's older than the mountains, his wrinkled pink face barely visible between bushy grey eyebrows and a long, flowing white beard.
He is in good shape.
He is standing.
His skin looks as though it has been hardened with a chalk-like substance, although the legs seem not to be covered.
He has a medium bone shield floating around him.
