What's up with Spike's scar? He has some kinda magical powers, right? :o

Yes he does :) It’s called Pure Magic, basically the root of all good Magic. On his planet, there was only one other who was born with it, and that was his ancestor, the first High King of Marya. That king was born with those scars, and received the one on his chest later on. So whenever Spiek uses his magic, those scars appear on his body in the same places. They only last as he’s using Magic, though, so they’re not permanent. They burn the first few times he uses his gift, but eventually he gets used to it. He tries not to use his magic too often though, half because it drains his energy like there’s no tomorrow, and the burning effect of the scars wasn’t comfortable at first.
