Mentors transcend the role of mere trainers or coaches. They are guides for decision-making, and shape the approach, mindset, and priorities in craft that their mentorees adopt and adapt towards their own goals. The mentor is generally expected to not provide too much direction to indecisive mentorees, instead teaching them spiritual practices, such as meditation, to help them become more attuned with their own desires and drives for craft. If a particular mentoree experiences difficulty with decisiveness, a Consultant may be used in collaboration with their Mentor to get them back on the right track.<br />

It is in the child’s (or group of children’s) best interest to heed their mentor’s instruction well, as the mentor is not required to stick with the child(/group) if they cease to demonstrate talent. With every mentor a child cycles through (or group they are asked to leave), they are less likely to be picked up by another one. A Mentorship Guild exists to oversee mentor/mentoree pairings and groupings of mentorees. There are no “career mentors”, as there is no pay associated with mentoring; it is simply an accepted part of retirement in every crafting career. If an individual chooses to take up mentorship before they retire from their careers, the duty will not be imposed upon retirement. Not all adolescents have mentors; the most prestigious accomplishment for an adolescent is to transcend their childhood mentor and obtain a direct apprenticeship with a currently-serving Master in a guild. This is done to facilitate their induction into the guild directly after their training is complete, acting as a career fast-track for the highest achievers. <br />

Mentors are encouraged to turn a cold shoulder toward students who are defiant and make themselves difficult to guide. However, all adolescent rebellion should be taken as a cue for the mentor to reconsider how they are performing their role, as adolescent rebellion is “the flame that catches from Aderyn’s inner light being oppressed”. This dynamic places strain on the mentoring relationship and inhibits the student’s progress as well as the mentor’s ability to guide. Under such circumstances, mentors may take a sabbatical from their mentoring post long enough to pour energy back into their own crafts and goals, and reflect upon the delicate balance of instilling discipline without quashing individuality. <br />
