Paying 1 Food for a fortune will result in him saying in one way or another that your party will "die a terrible death". The whole party will lose one Morale, but the upswing of this is that a randomly selected party member will "resolve to defy fate" and have their Vitality increased* by one.
Paying 5 Food will allow someone to have a tarot reading. The selected character's stats will be revealed in their entirety, allowing for more educated choices during events.
*An additional effect will occur in which the character's seed value will be boosted very high. This effects various randomised components of the game.

The prophecies still say that you will die a terrible death!
The Wiz predicted that he'd safely make it to Canada, and look where he is now.
The Wizard has no special abilities - however his weapon the Wizzle Stick shoots balls of lightning which jump to nearby zombies when they hit. Allowing him to deal with large groups.
- Due to his green skin colour and pupil-less eye it's possible the Wizard is actually a zombie.
- It is not revealed however the Wizard always joins with 1 Strength and 2 Fitness.
- The Wizard's epilogue is most likely a joke about how his fortunes say that you will die a horrible death/not make it to Canada.
