The ExtraOrdinary Wizard is the head of the Ordinary Wizards.
The ExtraOrdinary Wizard and his or her Apprentice live on the 20th and 21st floor of the Wizard Tower behind a big purple door that is forbidden for everyone except the ExtraOrdinary Wizard and their Apprentice. The door itself is Enchanted, only opening for the ExtraOrdinary Wizard and the ExtraOrdinary Apprentice. The ExtraOrdinary Wizard is in charge of the Wizard Tower and its inhabitants. The ExtraOrdinary Wizard wears purple, and their Apprentice wears green, like any other Apprentices.
