Sages differ from Wizards in that they don’t actually possess any type of magical power. Rather this type of character is typically represented as a kind and wise, older father-type figure who uses personal knowledge of people and the world to help tell stories and offer guidance that, in a mystical way, may impress upon his audience a sense of who they are and who they might become. He may occasionally appear as a hermit or even an absent-minded professor, losing track of his surroundings because of his deep thoughts. No Sage should be without some type of long-flowing facial hair. The Sage Beard fits most standard minifig head/torso combinations.
