"You’re very grounded, poised to harness the Earth’s innate power. Don’t be surprised if a lot of people start asking you to grow them weed."

Natural Magic is the discipline concerning the manipulation and development of living things, especially plant life forms, through magical means.

Characteristics Edit

Natural Magic is the area of proficiency in magic that deals with the environment. Naturals are known to maintain and groom the grounds of Brakebills, as in the The Magician King, Dean Fogg informs Quentin that a band of Naturals were trying to control a rogue animated arbust. In the show, Elliot referred to a group of students creating a cloud part of the "Natural Magic", revealing that meteorological manipulation is another field of this discipline.

It is unknown whether or not Naturals can manipulate animal life or not.

Differences between Healing and Natural Edit

Although similar to Healing, it is distinguished by the fact that while Healing deals with healing wounds, poisons, diseases and other ailments of living things, Natural Magic deals with developing and manipulating living things. So Natural Magic to Healing would essentially be construction to reconstruction.

Brakebills House Edit

Naturals have a treehouse in the forest surrounding Brakebills, past the border of the Sea. [1]
