About Edit

Magic TypesEdit

Source of Magic Edit

  • A massive energy of the planet as it moves at terrifying speeds through space. Gravity, sunlight, the pull of the moon, can all be converted to energy by those who know how—like the Fey, to a much lesser degree, lycanthropes.[3]
  • Human magic users can borrow only a tiny amount from nature; most of their power has to come from themselves. [4]
  • Dark-magic users: borrow tremendous magical energy by stealing the lives of others or from the netherworld, but they pay a huge price for it.[5]
  • Speculation: Earth generates a magical field the same way it does a gravitational one, and that someday, someone will figure out how to tap it. That is the holy grail of modern magical theory, and no one has managed to do it so far.[6]

PowerEdit

  • Power wasn't free, especially in such large amounts—eventually you get a bill. [7]
  • Magic is like a muscle, a metaphysical one—the more a mage works with it and trains it, the stronger it gets.[8]

Tools of MagicEdit

  • Most mages use some kind of cheat to enhance their abilities...
    • Talismans to gather natural energy like batteries over long periods, to be disbursed at the mage's command, like Billy's necklace
    • Some form links with other magic users that allow them to borrow power in time of need, like the Silver Circle.
    • Enlist as allies magical creatures who can absorb natural energy better than they. [9]
  • Runes [10]
  • Power Words[11]

Other DetailsEdit

  • Names carried power—there were rumors that the Fey never told anyone theirs for fear it would strengthen any spells used against them. [12]
  • Magic of the Mages or the Pythia doesn't work right in Faerie. [13]
  • A powerful, untrained magic user is a target, nothing more. Power can be siphoned away if you don't know how to protect yourself. The Dark Circle has no compunction whatever about stealing magic from anyone they can.[14]

List of Magic SpellsEdit

(In order to how they appear in the books per the reference tag)

  • Marley spell: a spell that prevents exiting a window—the window acquires a mouth that screams an alarm.[15]
  • Tar Baby Spell: slang for a really strong variation of a prehendo—anything that gets within a certain perimeter of the bespelled object is gonna get caught like a bug on flypaper. Cassie gets caught on Jimmy the Rat's cage. [16]
  • Power Word[17]
  • Geis: magical compulsion spell—prohibiting behaviors [18]
  • Duthracht Geis: spell of ownership, like a magical chastity belt; [19]
  • Shadow Spell: works in full light to make people less obvious. It works on humans by redirecting their attention away—will not work on master-level vamps, but all else.[20]
  • Silence Shield: now one outside the shield can hear.[21][22]
  • Magical Fire: burns like phosphorus—doesn't put out easily. [23]

Quotes Edit

“Tony wouldn't allow me to be trained.” ... "He did you more of a disservice than you know. A powerful, untrained magic user is a target, nothing more. Power can be siphoned away if you don't know how to protect yourself. The Dark Circle has no compunction whatever about stealing magic from anyone they can. At the moment, you fighting a dark mage would be like a baby trying to arm wrestle a bodybuilder, unless you use the power of your office. You need training, at least in defense," he said seriously, "and the sooner the better.” — Cassie & Mac, Claimed by Shadow [24]
