what's a levita
An obscure latin word.
But I’m going to assume that you meant Lepida. Like I said, I don’t know very much about them but here’s what i do know:
They are humanoids that have wings that look like only the veins of either moth or butterfly wings. The wings are usually made out of something that relates to the element that they’re closest with. For example, the shadow lepida that i met had wings that were black with this smokey sort of energy coming off of them (Sort of like the smoke shit on a Ghastly) and the ice lepida that i met had light blue wings that i assume were made out of some sort of ice or snow.
Actually, to name a lepida by their element would be wrong. Just as you wouldn’t call a human who works with the element of water a “water human”, you wouldn’t call a lepida who works with water a “water lepida”. They are simply called “Lepida” (plural Lepidae??). Some people have called them “butterfly demons” or butterfly witches” but considering that there those who are moths I don’t think those are the true terms. One Lepida that I met scorned them, but another said that they were accurate.
Though the term “butterfly witch” is interesting because it reminds me of the term that I’ve heard called “butterfly magic”; which is apparently what makes a Lepida a Lepida. (Of course if you once again ignore that there are moth variants). I suspect that “butterfly magic” has something to do with working with the spirits of butterflies (and moths). So I can imagine that the term “butterfly witch” means someone who practices with the magic and spirits of butterflies (and moths).
In Touhou, there’s a species of youkai called a “Magician”. That is basically a human who has practiced and researched so much magic that they are able to become a youkai. I think that concept is somehow related to the Lepidae. That they are human spirits or even physical humans that have worked so much with “butterfly magic” that their entire being has gradually changed to be something else. I am of the personal belief that the more you work with a specific type of entity (Ex- me and insect spirits) the more your energy begins to match theirs. It’s the fact that I came upon that belief when I was talking with the butterfly spirit trio is what made me think about how it may relate to Lepidae.
Like I said earlier, they usually focus on one element or area in their magic and they are extremely powerful in this area. Like legit don’t fight them they can be very scary. Though, similar to most insect spirits, they are vulnerable to storm-related magic. They are also pretty knowledgeable about different areas of magic, for example, one taught me how to create spirit vessels (like the ones for companions). Basically, they are very adept magicians/witches with butterfly/moth wings. They like to wear witch hats too.
I wish I could say more but whenever I asked them a question they’d laugh as if it were a joke or, most of the times, think that it’s weird for me to ask that and say that I should already know the answer.
