overwhelmed-with-joy said: Are there wizards that have scientific jobs? Like are their wizards who become geologists or veterinarians?
Wizards worldwide hold down every kind of employment imaginable. Any kind of work a nonwizard might do, you’ll sooner or later run into a wizard who’s doing it (assuming that you’re looking).
Because of wizardry’s strong scientific component, though, there are a lot of wizards who get into scientific backgrounds: people who like the feeling of being “on the continuum” both inside and outside of their work lives. My own headcanon (not yet solidified) suggests that there are probably a disproportionate number of wizards at ESA and NASA. (There are sure as hell a lot of Young Wizards fans there, to judge by my mailbag…)
My headcanon includes a veterinarian’s office staffed almost completely with wizards (& aware non-wizards). Can you imagine getting, instead of a sheet of paper with meds directions/things to watch for/etc, having a sheet ‘ripped’ out of a manual with wizardries re: monitoring various things to be monitored, how to make the meds taste not-awful while still working, keep track of blood levels of whatever-it-is, suppressing/reducing arthritis pain etc…? An early alert for assorted complications that might develop?
Yes, I have had geriatric cats.
And I think I want this more than star trek’s magic tricorders!
