About Edit

Aura is the magical skin or energy field of a person or object.[1]

Powers & AbilitiesEdit

  • Auras can tell basic facts about someone—human or not, etc. [2][3]


  • Useful for building shields and wards.[4]
  • Some security wards can detect auras—they tell you basic facts about who it was who broke in—human or not, aural imprint; good one tell you what they did while in your place. [5]

Other DetailsEdit

  • Wards printed on auras use the person's innate magical power, while other wards draw power externally. There's a limit to the number of wards imprinted directly onto a mage's aura that they can handle—no limit to the ones that are not.[6]

1. Touch the DarkEdit

Eugenie had taught Cassie to sense her energy field, what some people call an aura, then use her power to build a hedge around it for protection—to create a shield for filtering out extraneous ghostly trails. [7]

2. Claimed by ShadowEdit

Mac applies a tattoo ward—a magical sword—on Pritkin's back to use in Faerie. "it should imprint his aura- his magical skin-as well as the physical. When he throws his shields up, it'll manifest as a real weapon."[8] while Mac examined her ward, his various instates made her aura itch and cackle. Mac says that her aura is confused with the Pythia's energy, and he can't separate them. Any ward tattoo he gives her will likely draw from the Pythia power—which she wishes to avoid doing.[9] Cassie's aura changed after she became Pythia. Kit Marlowe kneeled and John Pritkin became furious, accusing her of tricking him.[10]
