Magic is the art of turning aether into substance. Some forms of magic do deviate from this general mechanic, some magic forming from within a person or by some alternative means. Aether emanates from the Cosmic Nexus, each node of that nexus being its very own, unique nexus - such as Earth's Nexus. Magic allows users to perform many incredible, or minor, special feats.
