Gentle Reader visits the Enchanters of Sye today. Lita takes you to the sorceresses’ library at the Magic Guild. See all these ancestry books? Peek inside this one. Here are the names of magicians, long dead. Why so many names for just one person? Lita explains.
Magical power lurks in knowing the names of people, objects, and ideas. Confidences also have hidden strength.
Combine these two elements, and a Secret Name is the key to unlocking that magician’s power. In Sye, a person’s Secret Name is the closest-kept magical strength, and weakness, for an individual. A mother gives the name to her newborn and shares the life-long secret with her child. Spouses exchange Secret Names on their wedding night. And Enchanters share Secret Names with only their dearest Essence Partners.
