Claws of the Dragon
Initiates are Adepts of the lowest Status Level within their Discipline—those at First Circle. They have learned the central tenants of their path through years of training and study, but have not yet delved into the deeper mysteries.
Though they are members of their Discipline, they are rarely given total freedom of action. They often are given tasks by Journeymen that are designed to put their training to the test for the first time in live situations.
Upon reaching Second Circle, they graduate to the status level of Novice and their basic training is finally complete.
