Deus Ex Machina (変科学者の極人造創造, Deusu Ekusu Makina; Latin for "God from the Machine", Japanese for "Mad Scientist's Ultimate Artificial Creations") — contrary to the etymology of the name, is considered to be one of the most advanced forms of magic, as it plays on technological advances instead of archaic magical power. It's a Caster Magic due to no medium being needed for its usage. It's also a Subspecies Magic of the famed Weakness — a magic that many believe to be full of flaws in its design. It's also a form of Molding Magic, but not in the conventional manner — a trait shared with another well-known magic; as recognition of such a fact, it's alternatively coined as Vulcan-Make (高度人造生物設計の造形魔法 (バルカン·メーク), Barukan Meiku; lit. "Highly-Advanced Robotic Organism Design Molding Magic") by many users and scientists. It's an obvious fact that this magic incorporates the element of metal, thus is also derived from Metal Magic.
Because of the complexity behind this magic, it's used only the most intelligent of individuals. Like a certain magic, it's used by various scientists — allowing them to come up with many artificial constructs, dubbed as "Machinas" (人工無機生命体, Makina; lit. "Artificial Inorganic Life Forms"). It's not restricted to such beings; this magic allows the user to create weapons and other mechanical tools, their possibilities being limited to the caster's imagination.
The use of Archive and Super Archive is commonly associated with this magic, as it allows the caster to access certain information stored within its vast data base, which may lead to ideas on what can be created; it's also because it helps the caster to broaden their "understanding" — the main factor needed to perfectly execute this magic.
While this magic has it's fair share of advantages, it's considered to be incomplete; this caused it to be sought out, with many aiming to complete it for their own purposes. It's unknown when this magic was created, but the only recorded users were scientists. It's unknown how it leaked to the general populace, but the information pertaining to it is kept under raps by the machinations of the Magic Council.
"My creations shall remain unrivaled. As long as I have my intellect and this magic, I can create machines that achieve things that normal people couldn't do in a thousand lifetimes."
— A mad scientist hinting the nature of this magic.
Ferrokinesis & Pseudo-Magnetism
This magic is meant to a re-vamped version of Weakness, something the author felt it lacked in understanding and proper naming. Not only that, it's made so that it can allow more flexibility with the Machina race while creating some kinda origin.
The name of this magic is derived from the term of the same name, defined as an unexpected power or event saving a seemingly hopeless situation, especially as a contrived plot device in a play or novel.
