The essence mage embraces both destruction and restoration. With skills like tossing flaming (or freezing) balls, and channeling elemental beams while expanding their talents to make them versatile in any situation.
Essence mages can rip apart the fabric of space and time, to teleport instantly between two locations. Depending on their specialization, these powerful magicks can also leave powerful AOEs behind that buff, or damage.
"From a young age, promising candidates are selected from the general population of Zenith to undergo this strict training. The learning of the way is strictly regulated, as it relies on hidden teachings that can only be discovered outside of the city. Unlike citizens of Zenith, essence mages spend a large part of their teenage years learning how to manipulate essence outside of Zenith, and so they interact with both Zenitheans, as well as the wandering, nomad clans of the borderlands. Because they lead such cloistered lifestyles but share so many experiences normal citizens never see, they are at once more knowledgeable and more sheltered."
