Thaumaturges draw their magical powers from positive energy. Most, though not all, believe this energy comes from some form of deity. These wizards are healers and protectors, who often spend as much time on good works as they do on the study of magic. Thamaturges rarely openly carry any weapon other than a staff and some find even that a bit aggressive. This is not to say that Thaumaturges are pacifists, they just prefer to not rely on obvious displays of force. In appearance, they tend to wear plain, simple robes, usually of a light colour. They tend to favour hoods over hats, and wood and leather over gold and silk.
