Spellfilchers are dabblers or dilettantes; these jacks-of-all-trades are usually spellcasters who have picked up their training informally or by theft or students of magecraft who quit their studies early. A knowledge, even imperfect or haphazard, of magic is of great use in the art of thievery, and so many spellfilchers use their powers for personal gain. The magic which spellfilchers have managed to acquire (or steal, or stumble into) tends towards illusion, evocation, or even bizarre, nameless powers forgotten by the academies.
