For other uses, see scholar.

"Scholars have devoted much of their time to the study of things past, giving them much insight into events to come. They are experts in Elemental, Light, and Dark Magic. At some point during their studies, Scholars will face a final choice: to continue on and become a Mage or to follow the dark path and discover how to become a Lich."

The Scholar is a magic class in Might and Magic IX. It is one of the two promotions of the Initiate, the other being the Healer. Scholars have fewer martial skills than the Healer, and rely on dark magic instead of spirit magic.
