"Should you choose the path of Magic, you will begin life as an Initiate. Initiates are poor fighters, but can learn all the schools of magic. Unable to employ the weapons of the Fighter, they rely on magic to vanquish foes. As Initiates grow in experience, they will have to make a choice to specialise as a studious Scholar or a devout Healer."

The Initiate is one of the two starting classes in Might and Magic IX, the other being the Fighter. Initiates are magic users, with more spell options than the fighter, but less skill with weapons and armor.
