 +[[http://​leifandthorn.com/​comic/​holly-explains-magical-inheritance/​|Magic isn't genetic]], there'​s no DNA test for it, and anyone can awaken magic even if no one in their family tree has magic. But if magic //does// run in the family, children will have the same magic type as one side of the family. For example, [[Mages#Ivy Muscade]] could have inherited nature magic from her father [[Mages#​Ebony Muscade]], or water magic from her other parent from [[Mages#​Magnus Cornouiller]],​ but not fire magic. This familial influence can also be inherited from surrogates
  
 In [[Ceannis]],​ children are screened for magical aptitude, and if they meet the minimum they can opt into a different schooling system. They start off being taught in small groups by domain (Water, Nature, or Fire). Eventually, when they'​ve managed to transform and are at least 13, they can graduate to an independent work-study program. In [[Ceannis]],​ children are screened for magical aptitude, and if they meet the minimum they can opt into a different schooling system.

 The transformation takes stamina to maintain, so it's not practical to go around powered-up all the time. Also, the sight of a magical costume is intimidating (like seeing a regular person walking around with a loaded weapon), so it's socially frowned-upon to be transformed without a specific reason. The transformation takes stamina to maintain, so it's not practical to go around powered-up all the time.
