The bridge between Order and Chaos
"Yes, Light, life, courage, goodness. That's all good and all... But beware. It is also very mischievous."
Light is by far the most revered element among Humans, though it's not as often used as magic. Its promises of life and protection are something that has always enthralled humanity, and that hasn't changed. Light may often present itself as a trap too, and can easily be abused to manipulate others.
Concept and PhilosophyLight is the element of Life; it represents peace, preservation, courage, lies, and the comforts of life. As the light of the Sun brings life to the world, the whole concept of this element revolves around preserving and protecting life. Light opposes Dark - where one seeks to extend life, the other seeks to end it. For an individual without Light, every second is just another moment until the end. For one who bathes in the purest Light, its bright shine may easily blind them to things, seeing only what is to their convenience.
Despite being of the Order type and aim to preserve life, Light is an element that creates half of the bridge to Balance. At the same time that it works defensively, it creates the needed courage to strengthen the 3 main elements of Chaos. Without Light's bravery, Emotion, Defiance and Freedom cannot work towards ultimate Balance.
To an adept of Light life is sacred and, therefore, must be preserved at all costs. For that, Light adepts are often over-protective and inspiring, but constantly keep themselves and others away from problems and conflicts. Ironically, this will to preserve may inhibit the inspiring courage of the element.
Magic and CombatThe manipulation of the Light element consists in protecting life in all forms. For that, its martial and magical styles always revolve around protecting the living and destroying what opposes them. Light adepts are specialized in healing and purification.
Among Light spells, there are the basic manipulation of the element, wound regeneration and the creation of protective wards. More powerful adepts can become invisible, create illusions and energy fields to fend off and destroy the undead.
The concept of Life gives this type of magic a different style than what is expected from an Order-type element. At the same time that Light fights defensively, it inspires the offensive. An adept of Light never seeks combat for enjoyment or any other mundane reasons. They only try to protect people from danger.
