Kaerri's Man. =)
And Auri is the biggest ball of them all. I dig it! =)
This is fine, just don't confuse this "ritual" involving Dina's blood and the Tenárus amulet with actual blood magic as performed by the (now all but extinct) Dragon Cults from the Daskárd desert. When people think of blood magic, they think of death, torture and darkness that's exclusively related to the Dragon Cults. The kind of forbidden magic nearly devoid of any sensible application. It does sound like you understand the difference, but I'd like to reinforce it anyway.The wizardly drakkar especially took note of the items and the ritual itself - blood magic was a study he had never been enthusiastic about in his 350 years of life, but right now, what could be better?
I'm afraid that's the main reason, yeah XD In Asgard, relying on sorcery or miracles to heal wounds is about as common as bandaging them up (provided one has access to such means). Dina has both, in this case. There would be several mages present at the scene, not including Archmage Arenov who is standing quite near and who would undoubtedly be more than able and willing to assist - however Natalis' choice speaks for itself. First, Maggie and Dina are both members of the Chosen. Second, a priestess is a more.... natural choice, since Miracles are seen as a higher form of sorcery and are associated with healing and restoration by default, everything else second (as opposed to conventional sorcery which people usually associate with... many other things, before arriving to the same idea). And third... I shouldn't go into details on this OOC, but... The nature of the Tenárus amulet and how it reacted with Dina's blood should be more than intriguing for Maggie, in her professional capacity. Let's call it "fitting" that it should be a priestess that's involved with the ceremony, and not a sorcererShe also wondered what she'd been called up front for. Perhaps merely to heal Dina's cut once all had accepted her blood's proof?
