An arcanist is one who has worked his or her way through the Arcanum at the University and been given a gilthe, or guilder, to carry as a symbol of that achievement. It appears common for students to take six years to pass through the ranks of the Arcanum and become arcanists.

Arcanists are viewed with great suspicion by many uneducated persons in the Four Corners, and their abilities, which seem essentially magical to those who are not educated in an arcanist's crafts, are often viewed as unnatural and evil. They are often mistakenly linked with demons and evil fae.
