Most aristocrats had at least a touch of Earth magic which linked them to their ancestral lands. Everyone knew that. And there were some men and women who could command Fire or Wind or Water–all of whom were especially valuable during war time, though of course Boney had his own elemental mages. Only the best of the best went to the Royal College of Magic to learn War Magic, perhaps from Arthur Wellesley himself, or to St. Raphael’s to learn Healing.
But mages were often looked at with distrust and wariness–they were dangerous, after all. And what if you angered one? Who knew what they would do?
There was a certain allure to having them at your party, though, and dangerous men (and women) were so very attractive, weren’t they?
But while the war continued on the Continent, that did not stop the glittering array of balls, musical evenings, card parties and house parties put on by the ton during the Season. Daughters, after all, had to find handsome, and hopefully wealthy, husbands. Sons needed to find pretty, and hopefully wealthy, wives.
Still, the war looms in the background, casting a shadow over the vivacious social swirl in London.
