Blood Magic is a creation of the foul Pravaii, the Stricken Elves, birthed from their overwhelming desire to reclaim their immortality and is also used by the Demons as a way of showing their loyalty to their God, Killar the Bloody Handed. It is a brutal magic, that has no need for the Mani that the other Magics use to fuel their spells. Instead it uses the pure blood of the caster, or a recent sacrifice, to cause the desired effect, be it a weapon formed of blood, some sort of magical projectile, defensive barriers or even, with stronger Casters, summoning the very dead themselves from the grave.
Of course the most powerful Blood Magic users are the Pravaii Heirophant, the Domina Curor and the Night Daemons. These few are capable of calling upon immense power and dealing out terrible damage. Blood Magic is a slayer of living things, a vampiric magic that will then use the energy of those just slain against anything still living that opposes it's wielder. It is not a magic to be underestimated or ignored simply because it has a limited amount of usage or because only a few are capable of wielding it with any great skill.
Magic Type Political Information
Effectively there is a state of open hostility between the users of Blood Magic and every other living thing, especially as these living creatures are mere fuel for the magic in the eyes of the Pravaii and simple souls for Killar to the Demons. Of course as with any large group of individuals, all of whom are looking out for number one, there are always multiple arguments out between those who use Blood Magic and indeed it is believed that the blood of a Demon is the most useful for Blood Magic.
The Symbol of Blood Magic is a drop of blood.
The most powerful living Blood Magic user is the Pravaii Heirophant.
