Magic is emotion. Don't let fear control you, use it! Stay true to yourself.
Douxie to Claire[src]

Magic is ability to control or influence the natural world (including events, objects, people, and physical phenomena) through mystical, paranormal or supernatural means. Apparently, spells can be performed by anyone (e.g., trolls, changelings, and humans) by use of magical items while saying particular incantations. However, wizards have greater knowledge and power over the use of magic.

Becoming a wizard involves a great deal of practice and training. Even those gifted with seemingly inherent magical abilities (Morgana, for example) can take several years to perfect their powers. According to Merlin, mastery over magic is mastery over life.[1]
