Spell Effect. This spell, requiring use of the spoken word, breaks the connection between the mind and the body of an intelligent being temporarily, making it totally incapable of any controlled movement. The non-concious movements such as heartbeat and breathing are not affected; therefore the target does not die, but is only limited in his/her action for a short period of time. If the mage isn’t skilled, or the target is resistant to the spell, the effect may be partial, e.g. the target can become unable to use its legs or hands. Usually only mages capable of casting level 7 spells can totally paralyze someone completely; lower-level mages will only partly succeed. Return to the top

Casting Procedure. The mage must have the needed reagents near him, helping him to imagine tiny threads running from the target's head to the rest of the body, which will then be cut through in the caster's mind. This cut is represented in the Magical Formula the mage recites and the spoken words are essential to audibly emphasize this breaking of bonds between mind and body. If the imagination of the spell's effect is strong enough to affect the target's cár'áll the spell will succeed and the effect will apply immediately. Return to the top

Magical Formula. Cuá’Lerán’Telí (Styrásh "
Cuá’Lerán’Telí")

Range. For low-level mages contact with the target is necessary, however, advanced mages can cast this spell from a distance (3-6 peds from the caster). This spell is only capable if targeting only one being at a time. Return to the top

Casting Time. 10-20 seconds. Return to the top

Duration. Depends on the level of the caster. Usually about 30 seconds for level 4 mages, and up to 2 minutes for level 8 casters. Return to the top

Counter Measures/Enhancing Measures. Magic resistance in general helps to be immune to the effects of the spell. Also eventual Xeuá spells that can reconnect the mind and body of the affected target will nullify this spell. Return to the top
