Vitatie Den

I'll be of no use indoors. The power I have requires direct sunlight so unless you can bust a hole in the roof, I'll be out of luck in a fight.
— Vitality mage

  Vitatie Den, also known as cholecalciferol, is a vitatie commonly created when sunlight makes contact with skin, but it can also be found in some foods or taken as a supplement. The vitatie is most widely known for its use by vitality mages who use it to manipulate the movement of their target's blood.
 

Sources

The simplest way for someone to gain Vitatie Den is to go out on a sunny day. The skin will produce cholecalciferol when exposed to sunlight. Food such as some fish, beef liver, eggs, and cheese may also contain it, but only direct sunlight is a reliable source of the vitatie for the purpouses of vitality magic.
 

Vitality Magic

Vitatie Den is one of the most unique sources of vitatie for a mage in terms of the deadly power it offers. By absorbing cholecalciferol in the caster's open wound, they will be able to manipulate the flow of their target's blood.
  Allowing the blood to mix with the vitatie will turn both into a crimson gaseous cloud that will circle around the caster until they've used it on a target. This power can be used, for example, to burst open an artery or to stop a friend from bleeding out, but it carries significant risks for the mage involved. The more blood they sacrifice, the stronger their powers, and if they lose too much, they risk their own death.
 

Cultural Significance

Opinions of the vitatie vary from country to country all across Lethea. In societies where vitality magic is viewed as a danger to be controlled, people are sceptical of those who sell Vitatie Den supplements.
