I think it's spelled "Magi", and it's a plural. Maybe a better title would be "Game of Thrones" Magi and Mystics?

Thanks, I looked into it a bit further and found another variation for Magie or magic practitioner that works better "Mage". Magi seems to be associated with the wise men, generally assumed to be three in number, who paid homage to the infant Jesus, a class of Zoroastrian priests in ancient Media and Persia, reputed to possess supernatural powers and astrologers.

I want the terms to be neutral and cast a broad net (Shadowbinders, Priests, Priestess, Warlocks, Greenseers, Wargs, Skinchangers, Alchemists, Blood Magic, Maegi, Woods Witches, possibly Maesters and others) referring to anyone, male or female that has unusually powers (ie practiced the various black and white magical arts or demonstrated a mystical or mythical ability) I also want to avoid getting into the source or their validity and avoid the traditional connotations and limitations associated with some other terms: priest, witch,warlock, sorcerer, magician.

Mage - a skilled practitioner of magic, someone who uses or practices magic derived from supernatural or occult sources, an acquirer of knowledge or wisdom using supernatural mean.

Mystic - a person initiated into religious or spiritual mysteries transcending ordinary human knowledge

He seem to have interesting back story that wasn't developed on the series. It probably works to make him more mysterious and streamlines the story arc in already overly complex story.
