A new Magic has been found called Shadow Magic with the release of Khrysalis! This hidden art is so dangerous and powerful that Grandmother Raven and Bartleby told Headmaster Ambrose not to learn it and to not teach it to any of his students! It has been forbidden since it touches the true essence of the Spiral. This is the forbidden magic that Morganthe wanted to learn when she was the student of Ambrose back in Avalon. When you learn and Train shadow magic from Sofie Darkside in the Eclipse Tower towards the end of Part 1 Khrysalis, you will notice in battle that you have a chance of gaining a shadow pip. To Morph into a shadow you need 1 shadow pip. You will have to master the art of the shadows if you wish to survive as one. There are currently 3 shadow spells, the Shadow Shriker, the Shadow Sentinel, and the Shadow Seraph. Each serve its own purpose. (Shriker for Attacking, Sentinel for defense, and Seraph for healing!)
