Mages of my world are called Electromasters. This is due to their amazing ability to manipulate and control electricity or more specifically electromagnetism. How do they accomplish this amazing ability one may ask. Many researchers currently do not know why but there are many theories. One such theory is the Fulmen Soul Theory which is where before the creation of the big bang was a powerful force of energy. When the big bang did happen, it interacted with the force- creating what is seen as the laws of physics. However this spread the energy all across the universe ingraining everything with it on a subatomic level. This comes in the form of electromagnetic fields. Electromasters have a higher amount of such energy in their body allowing them to control electromagnetism.
Another is Gaea Resonance Theory. The earth is full of energy which circulates in what are called Ley Lines which act as the blood vessel of the earth. This flows in the earth creating a magnetic field. What electromasters do is tap into these flows of electricity allowing them to absorb it passively in their bodies and release it. They use the earth’s magnetic field to manipulate objects. This is now in a grey zone of false and true when the first electromasters went to space and landed on the Moon. They still had their abilities. Some experts think that they simply had leftover energy from being on earth.
Now how does one become an electromaster. There are two ways. One which is to be born as one or two to be artificially modified. The first are called Natural-Born due to being born as an electromaster. The second is to be artificially modified through experimentation. This was started by Thomas Vanderbilt and perfected by Albert Winston. The Fulmen Link Treatment involves painful torture through electrocution while being injected and experimented on. The subject must be alive for this process or it will have a lesser effect.
Now the different classifications. There is the Electromaster Leveling Spectrum ( E.L.S.) It has two classifications. One which is Generator which is how many volts the person in question can generate. Another is Manipulator which is how many volts of electricity can they manipulate. An extreme version of a Generator is a man who can generate insane amounts of electricity to power an entire country but can not control any of it while the opposite is a woman who manipulates electromagnetism on a molecular level but can not generate a single spark.
Another classification is what domain they focus in. Domains are what the certain electromaster focuses on. What do I mean? Electromagnetism covers almost everything this universe has to offer thus they need to separate it into different fields.
One such domain is called Bio-Electricity or by its much more common name Puppetry. Puppetry is the domain focused on manipulating- mostly other’s bio-electric field. People who have this domain use it for a variety of purposes such as healing due to the fact electric potentials direct cell migration which Puppeteers manipulate. This can be seen in nearly all mammalian cells when placed in an external electric field (EF), a phenomenon termed electrotaxis. Electrotaxis is the movement of cells along an electric field. Thus by moving the cells you can move it back into place basically stitching it. This domain requires a high Manipulator rather than Generator. They can also manipulate other people's bodies through their muscles though it is not precise. This field was thoroughly fleshed out by Albert Winston.
