The magic spirits are a group of, well, magic spirits that are ruled by Lady Tempest and Selene the Divine.
Magic spirits are different from souls in that they have never been 'born', in a sense, so they are not the souls of the dead. Their existence is due to pure magic, hence their name.
Order and Government
Magic spirits are divided into two main groups: Spirits of the Day, led by Lady Tempest; and Spirits of the Night, led by Selene the Divine. These two groups coexist in peace, though they rarely see each other due to their differing schedules.
Spirits of the Day are ruled by Lady Tempest, with Airion as her advisor and helper at her side.
Spirits of the Night are ruled by Selene, with Celeste as her advisor.
The majority of Magic spirits live in the Ether Forest. This forest gives them a hidden place to stay, while in return, the spirits also take care of the forest.
The Magic Spirits are very peaceful folk. Many spirits help take care of the forest. Some others take trades, usually mastering a certain kind or use of magic (elemental, healing, etc.). Some train as warriors in the spirits' army. A few help their rulers with certain tasks, becoming messengers and the like.
As closely intertwined as they are, the Day spirits and Night spirits don't see each other that often, due to the fact that the Night spirits are nocturnal, whereas the Day spirits are diurnal.
Magic spirits have existed since the beginnings of Mobius. They were wanderers, nomads, for a long time. But, they seemed to have some sort of navigational instinct, pulling them toward the Ether forest. Many settled there, starting a small kingdom of sorts. As the ages passed, the number of magic spirits grew, but little else changed.
Lives of Spirits
Magic Spirits are created due to influxes of magic in certain locations. The location, and the causes and effects of the influx, often determine a magic spirit's trade, appearance, and other qualities. Magic Spirits don't have actual parents. As such, their leader is the motherly figure, while the most powerful male of their trade is considered the father. Twins are very rare, caused when two magic spirits are created by an influx instead of one. Twins of this nature are almost always identical twins.
Magic Spirits do need rest, and sleep on a slightly lower plane of reality, called the Ether Links. Here, small strings of ether energy connect parts of the forest to each other, forming a thick web. The diurnal Day Spirits sleep here during the night, whereas the nocturnal Night spirits sleep here during the day.
