Magic - Origins
Magic – Origins
When the Planar was still young, the different worlds existed, separate and distant. Each world had its own unique, yet boring, inhabitants. For Aetheron, Helios had the Paradigm; For Archerus, Malaran had the Promeus. Ardora speckled Mecha with the Inevitables, and Karina flooded Pandamonium with Revenant. For Materia, there were the Elves, crafted by Magna.
One day, Magna wanted to change this balance, and began work on something he called The Magic Well. This Well would be an unlimited font of energy, harnessed by entities through the use of will alone. The idea of the Well was to give everyone access to the power they needed to have better lives, and in this regard, the Magic Well was a success.
However, the Well was large and chaotic. Magna realized his mistake as the chaotic energies pulled him in, and began ripping his precious Materia apart. His final act was to make Materia, and the planes that stemmed from it, float atop the Well like islands. This was the creation of the Fey-Wild, Shadowfell, and the Elemental planes.
The creation of the Magic Well had catastrophic effect upon the rest of the Planar. The Swirling energies starting pushing the outer planes further and further apart. Mecha took an exceptional toll, and to this day its inhabitants struggle to survive with the damage done. The other planes were able to subvert much of the damage dealt by the Well, but would soon be pushed into the void, forever lost in the Cosmos.
Thinking quickly, Severline cut herself open, and sped around her precious planes. Her blood became the Creatio Sphere, and the energy was able to wrap the Planar up so that it cannot escape into the void. In doing so, Severline had created life and death. Creatures began dying, and new ones were being born at incredible rates. This event shaped the Abyko Planar into the place it is today, and people still adapt to the Chaos released, and relish in its power.
Magic is now a source of power than anyone can tap into. Some have a more natural time of it than others, and the power source is unlimited. This is both good and bad. When the chaos of the magic floods too freely around the user, they begin to become corrupted: their bodies, minds, and souls all change slightly, altering the way they cast magic, and eventually consuming them and warping them into Demons. Casters learn to gain a level of control over magic, allowing them to cast more spells more often without risking corruption spilling out.
