Sin magic, or the Curse of Sin, is a power of aberrative depravity that manifests itself in magi who fall prey to human vice, usually from an early age. A curse on humanity by fallen angels, or so it is whispered, sin mages are fearful entities that are utter slaves to the vice they represent. Given the power to propagate their crimes infinitely, they become a scourge on humanity and wellsprings of corrupt energy.
No sin mage is able to willingly give up their power- Some may be able to make a temporary resolve, but if confronted with an actual threat, the curse bids them to reject and immerse themselves ever deeper. Like an addiction, sin magic feeds on the magi with slowly less intense pleasures and further cravings to continue their acts. The stronger the magi grows and the more they exercise these strengths, the more maddening the curse of sin becomes.
Nonetheless, for all of these drawbacks, some would consider these enviable powers. For example..
Effects Of Sin Magic
- PRIDE: Causes the body to regenerate at rapid rates, able to survive normally fatal blows with ease.
- WRATH: Strengthens the body beyond the normal limit of a magi, granting immense strength.
- GREED: Using the power of Greed, the Sin Magi is able to go so far as to 'claim' parts of the enemies power as their own, hording it.
- ENVY: Able to change shape at will. Their Envy even going so far as being able to steal the enemies spells for themselves, temporarily.
- GLUTTONY: Able to consume the enemy, assimilating part of their power and adding it to the Magis own.
- LUST: Able to enthrall those around them with magical powers, as well as rumored to be able to stay eternally beautiful.
- SLOTH: Instills a feeling of laziness to those around, slowing both itself and the enemy.
Sin magic is nothing more than the sheer, condensed power of a flaw of humanity, able to be warped and wielded by the cursed. Capable of acts beyond the norm, the manipulation of these powers can lead to fantastic results. Devouring souls, twisting the minds of others, empowering the body beyond human possibility: All of these effects are fantastically real, and terrifying in the hands of the cursed. Inherently, they must do ill with them.
Being publicly known as a sin mage is reason enough to be put to death. Though, a measure of fear can keep all but the most mad or brave at bay.
