Reiki no Mahō
Aura Magic (霊気の魔法, Reiki no Mahō) is said to be one of the earliest and most primitive forms of magic; in fact, it's been reputed as one of, if not the most basic forms of magic known to man.
It's known to be the highest known form of Magical Aura, as it allows the user to manipulate said aura in a more tangible form — giving it more physical qualities. It's also seen as a metaphysical concept that's recognized by most mages. Thus, only those who have mastered their innate magical powers to the highest extents are applicable to learn it. It's said that despite its seemingly simplistic nature, it takes many years to learn. It's difficult to uncover all of its secrets, because there's so little information on it in the modern era.
It's known that there are various practitioners of this magic, with only a few being able to fully master the art. It's because of this that they are labelled as "Aura Guardians" (
- "It's said that during the waning days of man, humans were able to manipulate magic in the most simplistic manner. Aware that magic had existed within themselves & their environment, they came up with ways to bend it to their whim. It was the only way that they could survive the harsh times they lived in and thrive for so long. Though it took many years to develop, they finally were able to create a new power in order to protect themselves. From then on, the secrets of said power were used for various purposes. Not only that, the secrets were passed down from generation to generation — hoping that the descendants would learn and properly utilize the very art that helped their ancestors to prosper for such a long period."
