A spellcaster and a familiar.

Familiars are magical creatures that act as companions for witches and spellcasters in The Sims 2: Apartment Life (when The Sims 2: Pets is also installed) and The Sims 4: Realm of Magic. Witches in The Sims 3: Supernatural get a moodlet that boosts spellcasting if they own a cat or a small pet, but these pets are completely normal otherwise.

Spellcaster help

Familiars are extremely helpful to spellcasters, they can reserve magical energies and can even help defend them from death. Familiars will get tired after defending a spellcaster from death and so must regain their energy.
