Ambrose: Witch! Concoct me a potion that will empower me to injure or slay my foes at my whim!
Meridien: Sure thing!
Ambrose: And, er, if it could boost my prowess at the plate, my softball team could use the offense . . .
Meridien: Say no more! One Harm 'n' Killer Brew coming right up!

This Ambrose is a very good wizard, but he majored in non-organic transmutation in wizard college (with a minor in food science), which doesn't do much for a man who's going through the inevitable "crush my enemies and rule the world" phase that every serious practitioner of magic experiences at some point. It also doesn't do much for drawing talent, which is what we have David Birch's figures for.
