A Magic Deficient Human is a human born to at least one magical parent, but is incapable of performing magic — the opposite of wizard born from a Non-Magic Human. They are also called wizard-born, similar to terms such as Muggleborn or No-Maj-Born, though this is less common. There is no true universal term for Magic Deficient Humans, as each wizarding community in each country has different terms for them.

Notably, wizards born to non-magic parents are descended from Magic Deficient Humans.
