A thaumaturge is a person of power in the Lunar government. The thaumaturges are also leaders in the Queen's army. Each thaumaturge is in charge of 6-15 soldiers. They do not fight unless the situation calls for it, but they excel at doing so, though they typically direct the soldiers. Their clothing shows their rank.
The uniform for a thaumaturge is a high-collared long coat that flares at the waist with long, bell-shaped sleeves. Gold-embroidered runes and hieroglyphs sparkle along the hems.
Colors vary: the head thaumaturge's coat is white; the second-highest rank is red; and the lowest rank wears black.

- The thaumaturges in the series are known for being exceptionally well-trained in their gifts and can glamour their targets easily, something that is seen as "magic" to Earthens; the word "thaumaturge" in fact means "a worker of wonders or miracles; magician."
