Types of magic users in mythology and folklore?
Sorcerer, mage, witch, warlock, shaman, wizard... these are all pretty generic terms, but from what I've stumbled across from looking up various mythological creatures, there are a lot of different, specialized types of magic across various cultures.
Veneficus (Rome), who poisoned and cursed people
Solomonari (Romania), who rode dragons and controlled the weather
Kitsune-tsukai (Japan), who took foxes as familiars and used the kitsune for various things
Onmyoudo (Japan), who... it's actually pretty complicated, they did a bit of everything
Tempestarii (Europe in general), who controlled weather
Do any of you know of other types of magic users that have appeared in folklore and mythology? Not specific people, but categories?
