/Viscount/ is pretty clear that Sethra considers herself a wizard, as
did Tazendra, while Issola is clear that Sethra does not consider
herself a witch. QED.

I'm tempted to take Vlad's comment about wizardry in Issola as a
somewhat fascetious comment intended to indicate that he actually
hasn't a clue in the world what wizardry is. "Roll them all together
and shove them in a box" sounds a lot like a verbal shrug.


Be pretty if you are,
Be witty if you can,
But be cheerful if it kills you.
