Though not yet expanded on, the discipline of Natural is very self explanatory: It is the area of magic which deals with the natural world.
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 enviromental manipulation is another field of this discipline.
It is unknown whether or not Naturals can manipulate animal life or not.
Specific Discplines Edit
- Herbalism: This discipline involves the magical study of botany and it's medical uses. Quentin was stated to not be one during the Discipline tests.
- Plant Manipulation: In the second book. Dean Fogg tells Quentin that the Natural Group was trying to control an animated arbust.
- Weather Manipulation: As said before, Eliot refered to a group of students creating a cloud as Natural. Therefore it can be assumed that naturalists can create and shape the meteorological patterns, for example creating rain, wind, or thunders.
Natural Magic VS Healing 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.
A tree house is home to the students from this discipline, and it's located in the Brakebills' forest, past the Sea.
