Thats the kind of stupid title I’d imagine elves would come up with….so they gimp their generals by restricting their element? really? Well I guess generals are almost never on the front lines anyway so it really doesn’t matter what kind of human artillery they’ve learned to magic themselves as.
Then again he probably knows other stuff from before he got promoted right?
So was his magical training the reason bael was able to retain iggy’s powers in victus’s body?
Allow me to go into how magic works in Suppression since that’s an a block of exposition that is both overdue and probably not gonna happen for a long time still. Everyone only gets one element normally. Even with training using an element other than your own is like trying to write with the wrong hand. What element each mage has comes from their outlook on life and their world view and such… pretty much “if you could do anything, what would you do?” The way you answer that question tends to be a good hint toward what element you get. The Ebon Creek characters got their elements by accident but it does all add up. Iggy is a sculptor and awakened his powers by making a stone wall to defend himself… It’s not hard to guess what motivated Nick to fire as Ebon Creek was pitch black and full of monsters… fire is a weapon that provides light. Charlie’s erratic mentality and insane obsessions with destruction just scream electricity.
The mages of Thal’nasia though know about the process even when their young so often their element is more of a conscious choice. And even then Trevor and Arrie don’t have elements.
As for Bael… he really is just stealing people’s moves. He wasn’t able to retain elements in the past until he picked up information from Victus’s head that gave him a better sense for how magic works. Before that he could only use his host’s own magic. But now he’s keeping all the magic moves of everyone he possesses. It’s possible to use all the elements, it just takes an insane amount of training to be good with anything but your own… Beal is cheating his way though the system and doesn’t even HAVE an element of his own.
Of course, this raises the question as to whether or not Bael is retaining the magical strength of his hosts, as well as their powers. Victus has been said to be capable of freezing the entirety of Ebon Creek; is Bael now capable of doing the same, even outside of Victus’ body?
Knowing how to bench press a truck isn’t the same is having a body capable of it. Bael knows the moves but is pretty weak without a host.
ah, that makes more sense lol. thanks for the answer
then it is possible for people to have the same elements? Phew. Was worried for a second there.
also forgot to say:
cool got an answer/explanation from the author
And now Bartleby’s plan comes crashing down around his pointy ears. Also is just me or does Victus seem to be a little over dramatic in how he said that?
Well we haven’t really heard a whole lot from Victus just yet, maybe he has a flair for the dramatic?
Victus resurfaces and wastes no time being awesome.
Also, Trevor’s ears? Did those just suddenly materialize from walking in here because I don’t think those were there before. Or at least, I thought they were hidden the way Arrie’s were.
I like how Victus was polite enough to bring bael his hat, yet enough of a ass to leave it on the floor.
I too hope the prissy Elves don’t nuke everyone for “knowing too much” as well. or being infected with the evil black gooey stuff.
