Profile

The magic of Kakaiba Catalog is based around the seven virtues and seven deadly sins, but instead of them existing as binary dynamics, they're interlocked to each other

Each virtue (besides Humility), corresponds to their mirrored sin (except Pride)

A virtue is a way to obtain magic, and sin is the expression of the magic

If one were to cast an explosion, you need Wrath magic, and that requires practicing Patience.

I'm not quite sure yet if practicing the virtue should be literal, or I should make up my own kind of virtue/technique for each virtue.

Pride, unlike other expressions of magic, can be practiced by anyone regardless of their practiced virtue.

There's two different types of Pride.

Good Pride extends to body modification, from the real-life practices to fictional catpeople becoming a reality.

Bad Pride is a result of a person trying to circumvent the typical virtue-sin system by abusing magic intended for Pride and attempting to use it for something else.

This is because the magic exists in a state that cannot be harvested through all stages of its existence under normal circumstances, from obtainment to the final breaths of its execution…

…unless it's magic intended for Pride, in which it temporarily becomes physical.

People using this physical magic may attempt to go through the same thoughts, motions, and incantations to cast spells they otherwise couldn't be able to, but the even the slightest deviance from the natural course of magic may backfire. As the magic is intended for Pride, a backfire will be cursing their physical form, draining their life force or mental state.

Chastity -> Lust magic; able to affect other peoples’ minds

Temperance -> Gluttony magic; manipulation of particular objects (i.e. waterbending), along with annihilation of said object

Charity -> Greed magic; conjuration of particular objects, or transmutation

Diligence -> Sloth magic; puppeteering of existing objects, or conjuration of “lesser beings” that follow set rules

Patience -> Wrath magic; creation of something out of nothing (i.e. firebending)

Kindness -> Envy magic; protective/barrier magic, dispelling magic, or persistent area-of-effect magic
