An Acolyte of the Alchemists' Guild preparing the Substance

"In bare stone cells beneath the Guildhall, our Acolytes prepare the Substance with utmost care and ancient magic."
Wisdom Hallyne[src]

Acolyte is a title within the Alchemist's Guild. It is the middle rank within the order, above Apprentice and below Wisdom.

Acolytes are tasked with preparing wildfire, which the members of the Guild call "the Substance" in bare stone cells, using the order's secret arts and methods, which Wisdoms boast is "ancient magic". Should an Acolyte accidentally allow the wildfire to ignite, the ceiling of the cell is 'spelled' to collapse and release a large mass of sand to quell the fire - and bury the careless Acolyte alive.
