Air Mark

The Mark of the Air Fae

An Air Mark is a type of Fae Mark that can only be granted by Air Fae. Humans Who have the Air Mark can use Air Magic, but are also able to use other types of magic if they practise enough. This is a difficult feat and is rarely seen.  
Young Mellaine? Oh no, nothing is wrong with her. She's just... a bit of an airhead. Got her head in the clouds and all that.   Yes. That was a joke based on her Air Mark.   Offensive? Well, I didn't mean it like that!

  The Air Fae are carefree and joyous creatures who live like every moment is their last, despite their long life spans. Most would say they are rash in their decisions and too spontaneous. Forgetfulness is also mentioned in relations to the air fae, as well as their marked humans. Many who choose to get the air mark share the Air Fae outlook on life. Live like every day is your last and do exactly as you want.   Though, many born with the Mark seem to oppose that way of life almost as a rebellion against the stereotypes that are thrown on them. They almost act as if they got a mark from the strict and orderly Earth Fae instead.  
The Air Mark gives access to many versatile spells, both harmful and helpful. Though people with this mark could create problems easily if they wish so, many see them as tricksters who have fun without meaning to hurt others. Hurting others is often just an unseen or uncalculated part of what they're doing.
He's always been a bit afloat - if one could say that. Too caught up in creating amusement for himself, nothing can hold his attention for more than a few moments.   Neither can someone for that matter.

Magic Difficulty

The difficulty of each magic for an individual depends on the Fae Mark they carry. If you look at the Mark Circle (to the right), it's visible to see which marks are the opposite of one another and which are closer than others.   There are 3 types of mark-relationships, which translate into what magic is the easiest and hardest to use.  


  1. Opposite Marks
  2. This is the mark that is on the opposite side of the circle.
    The Opposite Mark of Air is Earth.  
  3. Adjacent Marks
  4. These are the marks that are next to the given mark.
    The Adjacent Marks of Earth are Light, Water and Spirit. Spirit counts as an Adjacent Mark for all six of the other marks.  
  5. Opposite Adjacent Marks
  6. These are the marks that are next to the opposite mark.
    The Opposite Adjacent Marks of Earth are Dark and Fire.
The Importance of Mark Relationsships
People with the Air Mark would have an easier time learning and performing spells from Light, Water and Spirit, than Dark and Fire.   It would be nearly impossible to learn spells that require Earth Magic without years and years of vigorous training.
