HALATION TERMS

Nephelim

The Nephilim were the offspring of the "sons of God" and the "daughters of men" according to Genesis 6:4; and giants who inhabited Canaan according to Numbers 13:33. See more on Nephilim
Mutare

Latin word for change. Mutare are especially skilled Nephelim angels. Once they exhibit a naturally high ability in mathematics and science as well as other physical pre-requisites, their name is submitted to the Academy for consideration. After successful competition of the Academy curriculum (that can take from 50 to 150 years to complete) they are graduated into Mutare juntas.
Causatum

Latin word for consequence, effect, outcome, event, aftermath, ect. Causatums are brackets of string timelines that the Tambour give to Mutare leaders indicating an anomaly has occurred.
Writing Wall

Located inside of the Causatum Chamber. Status indicator for any Child of the Causatum while inside a specific timeline. The wall will turn gold if an anomaly has been absolved. The wall will turn red if the anomaly has surfaced.
Child of The Causatum

Anyone who has an anomaly to appear enough to call for a Life Event mission. Anomalies in a human's timeline will range from small to large will occur often as timelines aren't a strict science, however, if the anomaly is large enough to start affecting other strings, then they are recommended to become Causatum Candidates.
Strings of Fate

A construct of how free will and purpose (fate, destiny) work together. Since humans were granted free will, their fate is calculated using a precursor probability theory centered on random phenomena versus constants. The Strings of Fate and their behavior help the Tambour determine if an anomaly has occurred or not.
Causatum Chambers

Chambers that allow users inside of it to pinpoint a workable Causatum. Those who control it work inside of that timeline to prevent or change an anomaly in hopes that the strings correct themselves.
Pulse Event

On a spirit timeline, pulse events serve as a marker that segments of a previous timeline match up with the current. Whenever a pulse event goes off, it indicates to whoever is working the timeline that the strings have not been corrected enough, that they are heading towards an anomaly destination.
Spirit Essence

A lineal gift is an ability that is passed down either through the metrical side or through mating.
  • Healing - Key (Kithlish), Team Gazelle and Junta Gazelle all have known ability for healing.
  • Foresight - the Tambour have the gift of prophecy as well as foresight interpretation
  • Gift of Tongue - This is one characteristic all candidates for The Academy must have, the ability to interpret every language, from general syntactic languages to the supernatural.
  • Empath - Those who have a highly developed sense of empathy. It manifest itself through the ability to feel others emotions and /or reacts as they would. They can project their emotions but it is rare. Reem of the Fallen has the ability.
  • Telepathy - Lucan, Pythia Del. Lucan use is temporary and conditional, where knowing his name or any personal deep rooted fact about him disrupts the frequency to communicate mentally. Pythia Del, however, is a high leveled telepath only trumped [find spoiler tags] by her sister.
  • Synestheia - Defined as a neurological condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway. Seen in only one person in Caelian history, Aria Jinni possessed the power of Synestheia.
  • A unique olfactory identifier possessed by all human and Nephelim alike. Mutare use an olfactory pattern classification system to indentify and match scents to person as a human would with DNA. Scents can also be recognized person to person if one is familiar with their scent pattern.
    Lineal Gift

    Sigillum Dei

    The seal of God, or signum dei vivi, symbol of the living God, called by John Dee the Sigillum Dei Aemaeth) - A late Middle Ages magical diagram, composed of two circles, a pentagram, and three heptagons, and is labeled with the name of God and his angels. It was an amulet (amuletum) with the magical function that, according to one of the oldest sources (Liber iuratus), allowed the initiated magician to have power over all creatures except Archangels, but usually only reserved for those who can achieve the blessed vision of God and angels (beatific visionary).
