A xyn's element has minor influence over their personality.
Magic varies a lot between xyns, so you don't have to limit yourself to the above examples of what magic can do! It can do anything within reason.

Breath Magic

All xyns have access to the use of breath magic from a special organ in their chest known as the magicavea. This organ is intertwined with their breathing system making their breath weapon closely linked to their breathing. Control and precision over a xyn's breath weapon requires mastery over one's breath.

A xyn's breath magic is one of their most powerful tools so xyns are often taught from a young age to control their breath and practice.

When emotional, a xyn's element can leak out in their breath (ex: breathing fire when breathing heavily, sighing flower petals, etc).
It's considered extremely rude in xyn culture to intentionally blow one's breath magic in another xyn's face.

Knights go through intensive training to learn to combine their breath magic with other xyns. This is an extremely powerful attack strategy but requires coordinated breathing and a bit of time to charge up.
Combining breath magic is a difficult, precise feat, but extremely impressive to pull off. Xyns who get along well often have an easier time combining breath magic.

Magical Items

There are a variety of magical items in Lunerest, some being pretty common and others being rare or forbidden.
Xyns often use magical items to help them do things or simply as beautiful decorations like enchanted accessories.

forbidden magic

Corruption magic is considered forbidden in Lunerest. Many of the tomes and information relating to corruption magic is kept locked deep within the catacombs of Moonreach. Xyns caught practicing corruption magic will have a bounty put upon them and be chased down by knights. Punishment varies.
