Today, everything, we thought we knew about magic is wrong. So wrong, that for centuries mankind hasn't even known that magic is real, or that magic was once given to all of us, as a gift from the Gods.
Knowledge of magic has been kept hidden, guarded and concealed since the Uprising of Iunu (Heliopolis) in ancient Egypt, by a group of Celestial Elders known as "The Council."
The Council ruled, that mankind was not responsible enough to know the truth about magic, or their own magical abilities, because they were too easy to be corrupted by its power. So the Council removed all of mankind's magic and placed it into artefacts, monuments and buildings, until such time, that mankind could be once again trusted.
