Appearance and characteristics[edit | edit source]
Kasmina has long honey-blonde hair, a blue-white hooded cloak, and a long crook-staff. She can use her transformation magic to polymorph organic beings. This ability can be used offensively, e.g. transforming an enemy into a helpless creature like a frog. She can also take direct mental control of other people's actions, effectively possessing them.
She is centered in blue mana.
History[edit | edit source]
Leader of a shadowy cabal[edit | edit source]
Kasmina is the leader of an ancient, secret Order of Planeswalkers, a shadowy cabal with mysterious aims. Her larger goals are unknown, but her recent obsession is recruitment. Her preferred method is to identify what she calls "embers", non-ignited Planeswalkers. She helps these mages to discover their potential, even if it means causing trauma to ignite their spark, and then indoctrinates them in the ways of her Order. She is preparing for a looming conflict that dwarfs the War of the Spark.
War of the Spark[edit | edit source]
Kasmina was lured to Ravnica by the Interplanar Beacon, and immediately became trapped there due to Bolas's use of the Immortal Sun. Alongside many other planeswalkers and Ravnicans, she fought against the Eternals of Bolas' Dreadhorde. The skillful use of control magic allowed Kasmina to temporarily pull an Eternal to her side during the fight.
