Elemetia is a term that relates to the four types of magic found in Mytica. Each division of magic is connected to an element: Earth, Air, Water and Fire. The common Mytican witch usually has an inclination to at least one type of elementia. More powerful witches can summon multiple types, but even the most powerful witch is far from proficiency, let alone mastery, of their respective element. A sorceress, however, can master all four types of elementia. There are only two recorded sorceresses in Mytican history: Eva, who was a Watcher, and Lucia Damora, Princess of Limeros, said to be the sorceress Eva reborn.
Elementia is also empowered by the use of Blood Magic, a technique of enhancing ones Elementia through the sacrifice of the health of others. Witches often need to make use of Blood Magic, due to their Elementia being so weak and thinned out. however, Witches possess a strange mastery over Blood Magic, and are able to create items and perform rituals that require the use of Blood Magic, and can even bring people back from the dead through its use. it is even possible for a Witch to empower themselves to the level of a Sorceress through the sacrifice of many people, as when Selia Damora achieved this during the ritual to summon the Kindred, however this is apparently very short lived and brief.
Earth Elementia Edit
Earth elementia is essential healing magic. In Falling Kingdoms, Princess Cleo journeys to Paelsia in search of magical grape seeds imbued with earth elementia to heal her dying sister, which eventually she receives as a gift from exiled Watcher Eirene, albeit too late to save Emilia. In Gathering Darkness, Princess Lucia attempted to use earth magic to heal her dying fiancé, Alexius, but failed, seeing as how Alexius was an exiled Watcher and earth magic cannot heal them. Earth magic is also used later on, in Frozen Tides, by Olivia, posing as a witch, to Jonas Agallon|Jonas]] after he is wounded by Felix. It has shown to create powerful earthquakes when combined with Blood Magic, enough to completely destroy the Temple Of Cleonia and reduce it to rubble. Witches empowered by Blood Magic have also been shown to manipulate rock and stone, and even control metals to a certain extent. The goddess Valoria possesses the earth kindred.
Air Elementia Edit
Air elementia is transformational elementia, capable of creating illusions and altering appearances. One known practitioner is Dariah Gallo, an old friend of Selia Damora who used air elementia to appear as a beautiful young woman when she was, in fact, a withered crone. When Prince Ashur appeared at the end of Frozen Tides, apparently risen from the dead, he was accused of being a witch with strong air elementia posing as the prince, which was, of course, later disproved. It has also been shown in the use of Telekinisis, manipulation of the air to hold people and objects. When combined with Blood Magic, it has the power to create colossal tornadoes and violent windstorms, such as on Gaius Damoras road of blood when the Air Kindred was awakened. Witches have also been shown to have the power to steal the breath within anothers lungs, killing by suffocation as with the case of Sabrina Mallius's sister, and also the control of air currents, expelling powerful gusts of wind that are capable of shattering bone and breaking skin.
Water Elementia Edit
Little is known about this type of elementia as of yet. So far in the series, it is, essentially, control over water and liquids. Lucia has shown the ability to control massive amounts of water, transmuting it into ice to frighten a witch who had disappointed her, and has shown this ability multiple times throughout the series for offensive and defensive purposes. this transmuting of ice is something a normal witch is seemingly incapable of without the use of Blood Magic, perhaps suggesting that this power is only cpable of being used by Watchers or by Sorceresses. This elementia also has the ability to conjure rainstorms and fatal ice storms when combined with Blood Magic, as seen at the awakening of the Water Kindred at the Temple of Valoria. Witches have shown the ability to manipulate water, and are even capable of stealing water from another’s body, transforming them into a withered husk. users of Water elementia have also been able to produce water from either themselves or from the bodies of others, as showcased by Cleo when she was possessed by the Water Kindred.
Fire Elementia Edit
Fire elementia is essentially control over fire and heat. From the lighting of a candle to throwing fireballs and lighting fireplaces, all of it is within the realm of fire elementia. There are many practitioners in the series, including Lucia, the sorceress reborn, who tends to favor the element in offense, Selia Damora, who was far from proficient due to her being a common Witch, only possessing enough to light a candle, and the Fire Kindred Kyan ,who could be assumed to possess immense if not total control over Fire Elementia. Kyan even demonstrated a strange form of fire elementia, turning a guards body into crystal as it burned him. When combined with Blood Magic, it has been shown to create devastating forest fires.
