Magic in Adarlan
So here’s what I’m wondering: how much magic is actually still around in Adarlan? When the magic was cut off, it made it so people couldn’t access their magic. Wyrd marks are exempt from this. However there are some grey areas.
First off, here’s a small quote from when Celaena is heading to the Castle and is on the road after the first night or so.
“She didn’t dream, but when she awoke, she couldn’t believe her eyes.
Small white flowers lay at the foot of her cot, and many infant-sized footprints led in and out of the tent. Before someone coult enter and notice, Celaena swept a foot over the tracks, destroying any trace, and stuffed the flowers into a nearby satchel.”
?????????? Knowing what we know now, what could have possibly made these flowers?
Secondly, we know with magic gone, much of the fae population on the contient was defenseless. However, Aedion retained so of his fae sense, which I get. However, Celaena’s fae heritage manifested in her ability to shift and her magic moreso than just her senses. I’m wondering how was it, after you-know-what in Crown of Midnight, Celaena ran back to the palace on foot faster than Chaol road there on horseback (conservatively 20mph). This speed is not characteristic of Celaena the way Aedion’s sharper sense of smell is. Does it count as magic? How latent was it? I’d really like to understand exactly how it happened aside fromt he whole “grief” thing.
And lastly, a smaller thing: the Yulemas arrow of Dianna being given to Celaena… just a coincidence of fate to be mentioned later, or do the priests/priestesses have access to magic, maybe something similar to the wyrd marks?
