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.
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 heal Jonas after he is wounded by Felix.
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.
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.
Fire Elementia Edit
Fire elementia is essentially control over fire. From the lighting of a candle to a full scale forest fire, all of it fire elementia. There are many practitioners in the series. including Lucia, the sorceress reborn, who tends to favor the element, Selia Damora, who was far from proficient, and, of course, the Fire Kindred Kyan.
