Abridged Guide to Evil Wikia

Wards are a form of magical barriers used for protection and containment.

Wards are a set boundary forcing certain properties onto Creation. They require a physical anchor, but so long as the anchor is undamaged, anyone with the Gift can add magic to sustain them.[1]

Wards cannot be made over water.[2]

Wekesa specialized in this form of magic.


  1. Book 6 - Chapter 72: Omen Wards were a set boundary forcing certain properties onto Creation and requiring a physical anchor, but they were also static. So long as the anchor was undamaged, any idiot with magic could add magic into the wards to keep them going.
  2. Book Four - Interlude: Apostates it was, after all, one of fundamentals limits of sorcery that wards could not be made over water.
