Caught Between Worlds
Certain individuals are born with an intuitive link to the world beyond the physical. Beyond the confines of the physical laws of Terra, they can touch the infinitive possibilities of the Etheric Void. These individuals are commonly called Sensitives. Most Sensitives, if they do not receive additional help, never develop this link with the Etheric Void. They may develop some minor abilities, often a strong sense of empathy, a danger sense, or perhaps just “good luck.”
However, those that do develop this connection learn to draw upon the magic which suffuses the Void, and channel it to cast spells or manifest a number of supernatural effects. The most common path to developing such power is under the tutorage of one of the natives of the Void, a Power. Such individuals become known as the Power Touched. However, these exists the possibility of independent study, meditation, and personal reflection that lead one down the path of Wizardry.
While it is true that Sensitives have a strong connection to the Etheric Void, all living creatures touch it lightly through their Personal Magical Aura.
