Terminology

SPOILERS (THESE TERMS ARE EXPLAINED IN CHAPTER TWO)






 

Sorcery:

Sorcery refers to the usage of magic circles, spells, or sacrifices to summon and bind demons for the purpose of using them to perform magical tasks. “Demon” is a generic term; what would normally be called “fairies” and “gods” are simply called “demons”.

Magic:

Invented by Zero, magic is a new way of obtaining the power to alter reality/perform magical tasks without summoning a demon. As a result, magic is safer, simpler, and more powerful than sorcery. Experienced users are also able to cast spells without enunciating them.
