Rockstars. Wizards. Scientists.
Guitars. Wands. Pencils.
Songs. Spells. Equations.
It came to me when I saw and listened to clips of "It Might Get Loud" and saw some of the comments about it. High-level wizards could be like viewed as rockstars and scientists in the fantasy milieu by their peers.
When they're old, I suppose you could look on them like the aged caricatures of white-haired wizards. But they do have a past -- possibly a boring one, possibly a wild one -- filled with obstacles and achievements and a long history of enemies and friends and contacts.
A first level character though? In love with the music. Fascinated by the science. Awed by the various rising stars and all-out living gods in the field.
