we also need to talk about what magnus’ spellbook implies which is that he’s singlehandedly created hundreds if not thousands of spells and that these are spells unique to him. meaning he’s the only one who can both cast and undo them, except for what he may have chosen to share to a select few. and that these are likely the spells warding the Institute, but not only that, the Clave is probably relying on many other spells he’s created.
basically what i’m saying is magnus bane has the greatest insurance policy ever because if he goes, all of his spells go with him.
For the second image we have Greed 2003. Greed’s first weakness is that he is way too trusting. I mean, who would ever trust Kimblee, of all people? That is how you get stabbed in the back. Hard. Second weakness being the stone and his skull, for obvious reasons.
