Aldaayiein have a number of potential magical abilities that manifest due to their unusual origins. Some would be born with the ability to call the Jinn, their powers kept secret for fear of reprisal. Others would gain an animal companion when they came of age, a companion with whom they could speak. These creatures, called daemons, would act as an extension of their human companion, even being able to feel pain. Others would find a natural ability to generate illusion. Whole families of Aldaayiein would take to the road and earn their living as travelling performers.
