The Mystics are a race or culture of magic wielding humans, and a type of spellcaster. It also appears to be the name of the type of magic they use as well ('mystical'/'mystique'), to which they get their name.

BackgroundEdit

They speak in their own language.[1] The language can be expressed in written form with mystic 'sigils' in the shapes of stars and moons sometimes put on hats and turbans to indicate status of magician, or via mystic signs and shouted incantations.

The Sorcerer who once terrorized the Kingdom of Daventry and went around casting Paralysis Spell on victims, is a member of the culture, and is said to only speak in the language of the Mystics.[2] Although it seems that some Mystics are capable of communicating to others (and the sorcerer also was capable of using the Common tongue as well, though he may choose rarely to use it).

The Crystal Mystics are a race of ancients that once lived in a city in the underground, or now deeply buried below the Underground Realm of the Gnomes, they were capable of speaking to Connor over time in his own language. They got their name from their technology that uses crystals. It is possible that they were the precursors to the later Mystic culture.

Perhaps even crystal balls are based on the ancient technology of the Crystal Mystics: the 'mystic balls', made of crystal, such as used by the The Oracle of Llewdor, Fortune Tellers, and Haroun alRaschid.

Sometimes magic in general is referred to as the 'mystical arts' which may suggest that the Mystics represent the earliest form of magic, to which all other forms spawned from.

It was to preserve Magic, mystique, wonder, and enchantment--the nonrational aspects of existence-- that Daventry withdrew from the greater multiverse.[3]

Physiology and traitsEdit

Mystics maybe immortal, or at least long lived. Most appear to be of the human race, or at least appear human.

Perhaps related to the wingless fairy and faerie races (from lands such as Etheria). By some accounts Graham's Fairy Godmother was a wingless fairy (although she has had several forms). But she was known to have cast a mystic protective spell on Graham. But even the Druids can possibly trace their use of Circle of Stones and 'mystical' rituals back to Crystal Mystics and mystic architecture.[4] Fakirs are also able to use mystical tunes to entrance snakes. While its not clear if the Oracle was a mystic, he (she, or it) seemingly spoke telepathically to those was communicating with. In fact, it seems in general that Oracles are mystics or at least use the magic of the mystics. [5] Even the ancients who built the ruins on the Isle of the Sacred Mountain are said to use 'mystical inscriptions'.[6]

Wizards concoct mystical spells.[7] Generally wizards and their ilk are known to record in some manner the proper route to the completion of various mystical processes.
