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. They are also known for being very attractive without the use of glamour. In fact Doctor Erland states that being naturally attractive is a requirement as Levana prefers them that way. 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."
