Mages

Mages, or magical girls (which in Ceannic includes boys, and men, and women, and so on): humans who can use Southern Magic. This page covers the present-day mages from Ceannis.

Mages from other countries include Pania Kaitangata. Historical magical girls include Telga.

Student mages

Young mages who are still going through the national training program, which replaces the regular public school system.

Holly Cerise

Holly Cerise In the comic: Holly Cerise

Teenage magical overachiever. Smart and driven, plenty accomplished in her own right, but not above bending the truth to look cooler to her peers. Gets two-tone hair as part of her transformation.

Too advanced for typical magical-girl training with other kids her age, Holly was assigned to work with Thorn's team – first at the observatory, then at the Embassy – as an independent-study project.

When she passed her next evaluation, she was offered a job touring with Leachtric to help Cedar Oseille with his burgeoning powers (and clean up after any messes they make).

Holly had to play with Ivy a lot as a young child, because her mother, Laurel Cerise, is close with Ivy's father. She respects and admires Ivy's power and skill, even while finding her personally annoying.

  • Domain: Stars (based on Nature)
  • Ethnicity: Feabhric
  • Age (first appearance): 14
  • Likes: Superheroes, admiration, cake, the Holger Saga, famous people, places without famous people if they're cool enough
  • Dislikes: Loud noises, loud people, test results (they can only be “bad” or “as expected”)

Major appearances

Ivy Muscade

Ivy Muscade In the comic: Ivy Muscade

Squeeful teen magical girl. Dyes her green hair blonde, and wears yellow contact lenses, due to an obsession with Sønheim’s culture and aesthetics (and fantasy series).

Loves her OTPs and her cinnamon rolls; enthusiastic at karaoke; hasn’t quite mastered the concept of the inside voice.

Don’t let any of that trick you into underestimating her. Ivy is the most powerful water magical-girl of her age, and on track to be the strongest in recorded history. Most recently, dissipated a tsunami on the Hurricane Coast, officially for a “power level test.”

Ebony Muscade is her father, and Heath Cornouiller is her grandfather.

  • Domain: Water
  • Ethnicity: Aibreán
  • Age (first appearance): 14
  • Likes: Athletic women, cute animals, little fishies, any and all series from Sønheim
  • Dislikes: Meanies, natural disasters

Major appearances

Cedar Oseille

Cedar Oseille In the comic: Cedar Oseille

Tween heartthrob. First got famous as the star of a live-action kids' show, The Littlest Prince. Did a lot of cute singing with woodland animals.

A few years later he put out an album as a solo singer, then started rehearsals for Leachtric, where he plays the title character's squire. By now he's accustomed to being swarmed by fans. Hired to do a special performance during the vote-tallying in Kolpovision.

He was suppressing magical-boy powers for a while, in order to focus on his career, until danger makes them awaken. Knows how to do a few defensive spells on instinct, but isn't sure how to develop new ones.

  • Domain: Nature
  • Ethnicity: Aibreán
  • Age (first appearance): 14
  • Likes: singing and acting, how he looks in glasses, pretty boys, flowers
  • Dislikes: parental disapproval, merchandise resellers

Major appearances

Acai is a long-runner who occasionally changes her name. She was known as Sotetsu when she was the devoted companion of Rhódon, and as Palmeti when she supported Rhódon's reincarnation Leachtric. Their romance is legendary, although only Acai remembers their whole history, which does tend to put a lot of pressure on Rhódon's reincarnations.

She's able send other people to the past as time-travelers, and send messages to her own past selves. (Some of their forms.)
