Known Dark MagesEdit


Other DetailsEdit

  • The Silver Circle is allied with the Senate, and it is an old alliance. Disrupting it would be a coup for the Black Circle..[6]
  • The Black Circle does not have the power to steal someone's body the way that Cassie stole Jonathan's in the lot fight. [7]
  • Myra has likely brought them messages from Rasputin for aid. It would be coup for Black Circle in 1661 to disrupt the old alliance between the Silver Circle and the Senate. The'd readily aid Rasputin.[8]
  • The Black Circle has no compunction whatever about stealing magic from anyone they can. A powerful, untrained magic user is a target, nothing more. Power can be siphoned away. [9]

Selling Witches Edit

The Black Circle has be slaving witches by underhanded means to get around the treaty law that now witches may be abducted or sold into slavery to the Fey. They have kept the trade quiet by snatching witches who were fated to die young, in an accident or in the Inquisition or whatever. They could grab them at the last minute and sell them to the Fey without worrying that someone would miss them and report it. No one expected to see someone taken by the Inquisition again. — That witch Cassie saved was snatched by a group of dark mages that same night. The gypsies have always stayed outside both circles, so, they figured they could take her without alerting the white knights[10]
