A member of the priestly caste in ancient Media and Persia traditionally reputed to have practiced supernatural arts. In Christian art, the Three Wise Men who came from the East to pay homage to the Infant Jesus are called the Magi. (Matt.2:1-12)
The Magus is the name of two fictional characters in Marvel Comics' universe. The two characters are completely unrelated, except that they are both evil and both coincidentally associated with a good character named Warlock.
Magus is a fictional character playable in Squaresoft's 1995 console role-playing game Chrono Trigger. Depicted as a brooding and powerful villain, he challenges the game's heroes with advanced magic and plays an integral role in the story. He is an optional or hidden character, but is nonetheless an iconic cast member of Chrono Trigger with many fans, and has appeared in three Game FAQs character battles.
