In some of the quests it talks about how most people choose morganthe because she is gonna win. So maybe in the quests you can have computer generated wizards who lose faith in Merle and the join the shadow. And you can fight then like bosses, and they have stats and there is a book you can hit X to look at their stats. And they can be smarter then normal bosses.
This is sort of what the Lost Pages event is about - ordinary students getting hold of dangerous magical material and being led astray, and it's up to us to give them a reality check and clean up the mess they made in the streets of the spiral.
I still like the idea but what if the wizards are graduated from Dragonspyre academy right before it got destroyed. I don't agree with the stats. Even better they could be under one of morganthe's spells.
