Hundreds of years before the events of The Black Magician Trilogy and before the Guild was established, Kyralian magicians took on apprentices, to teach them magic.

Magicians would choose a young person with latent magical ability, and take them on as their apprentice. Usually they only took on one at a time. The apprentice would live in the magician's household, and the magician arranged lessons as he or she saw fit.
