Mages (or Hermeticans) are awaken practitioners of magic who believe in hermetic magic. To a mage magic is a science following a logical system of rules in which they can exploit to cast spells.

Mages are differentiated from shamans by usually learning spells from a magical institution, summon elementals instead of spirits, and follow a logic tradition.


After SR4 however, there are now mages that can learn from a mentor spirit,  and elementals and spirits have been combined to be the same thing.
