This is one of the most common magics of the Fae—glamour…the ability to confuse and muddle mortal vision. It was granted to Colvin by the Spear of the Wild Hunt, upon completion of a ‘hunt’. Though the Wild Hunt was led by ghostly leaders of legends, and Norse Gods, its ranks were oft made up of Fae…those cruel, capricious torturers. Though he despises Fae, the spear is beginning to turn Colvin into something beyond human. Not fully Fae, but not fully mortal either. It is beginning to make him a Member of the Wild Hunt.
