Ascendants: The Second Rebellion
The magistrat is an order of mages, and the only official and legal order of magic-users, established by Sylenthus Orivar.
The Magistrat oversees the proper use of magic through the established colleges and efficiently condemns, many times through violent “justice”, the illegal use of magic outside of the colleges.
The Council of Magi, or Council of Nyne, or sometimes simply “Nyne”, makes the head of the Magistrat. Nine members seat the council, and are responsible for the major decisions involving laws about magic use and the colleges.
