Due to the previous war, many of those who deal with magic disappeared. Rahab had mentioned that there was movement between Russia and Sweden, which may be related to this war. Whatever the case, there is currently a shortage of youth with the born talents of magic. Measures have taken place to preserve these individuals, including soliciting random children and human trafficking.
Types of Magic User Edit
Slay Vega | Sleigh Beggy Edit
A human born with the innate ability to see neighbors, also known as fae. The Slay Vega are favoured by the fae who offer their assistance willingly and easily. The gift of kindness brings both a fortune and misfortune. As a result of their favoritism, the Slay Vega absorbs magic from their surroundings and amass a great amount within their body.
The downfall of a Slay Vega is that the accumulated mana will eventually take too great a toil on their body. They tire easily when using magic and will naturally die at an early age.
Known Slay Vega: Chise Hatori Edit
Sorcerer | Mage Edit
Certain objects of nature hold a specific meanings that are engraved in culture and serve as a strong foundations for magic. Sorcerers combine images, invocations and nature to weave their creation to their desired shape and purpose.
Known Sorcerers: Elias Ainsworth, Angelica Barlei, Alucia Barlei Edit
Alchemist | Magician Edit
Alchemist must understand the laws of nature and rearrange them to form spells. They create results similar to those of magic, but unlike the innate ability of a sorcerer, alchemist are held back by the rigid rules and a limited understandings of magic.
Magicians are not good vessels of magic power. They rarely are gifted with the ability to see the fae, and will often use an additional “battery” for magic. Slay Vega can be drained for their magic, and are thus highly sought after.
Magi are (currently) the only known magic-subgroup able to use magic without the help of fae, though it is very draining. They existed before man harnessed the power of steam and oil, and even before the use of names.
They interacted with the neighbors and asked for their assistance. Their work came to be known as magic. Many sought to find their purpose in life and perished trying. In the current day, few magi live, and most seclude themselves from other humans.
A primarily female group who may also be sorcerers, magi, or alchemist. They are mainly defined as those who form covens, sisterhoods made up of an uneven number of witches that support each other's endeavors. Witches specialize in curses (curing, countering, creating) and have the ability to lend their powers to others, much like the neighbors. It seems that many witches have roots in prostitution, channeling divine power into men and passing on their lineage to continue to develop their communities. Some members of the magic community frown on this and find they stand too close to the "children of men" and thus are more deceitful, with lies coming more easily to them.
