== Character Bio ==== Personal Information ==Legal Name:
Illyana Nikolievna Alexandria Rasputina (Rasputin)Alias:
Sorceress== Physical Description / Clothing ==
Illyana dresses in dark colored clothing. Definite similarities to the "goth" culture, but it fits her style and she's comfortable with it.== Personality ==
After living on her own for so long, Illyana is somewhat hesitant to trust people. Though once someone breaks past the barriers, they find a fierce and loyal friend. She also protects her commerades in battle, often with disregard for her own safety.== Key Skills ==
~Skilled in the use of swords and axes
- ability to teleport herself, and others, across interstellar distances or through time. However, she must use Limbo as a midway point for the travel.Sorcery
- a powerful mix of white and black magic, which she learned from an alternate reality Ororo Munroe while in Limbo.Limbo Control
- a small pocket dimension that is tenuously connected to the true Limbo. Magik's own Limbo, often referred to as the Otherplace. Time does not physically pass, thus no one can age or die. Since Magik is the master of her Otherplace, her thoughts and emotions can shape and transform the matter within it.Mystical Armor
- armor that appears on Magik's body the more she uses her magical powers. Her appearance also changes, becoming more demonic; including horns, hooves, or a tail. She does not know the nature and origin of her armor, only that it is a natural power of whoever rules Limbo.Psionic Shields
- impenetrable shields that prevent even the most powerful telepaths from reading her thoughts, or sensing her psionically.Skills:
~Skilled in the Black magic of Limbo, and the White magic of Earth
~Expert use of ancient weaponry; mainly axes and swords
~Can speak English and RussianWeaknesses:Dark Half
- Use of dark magic or intense emotions can cause a demonic 'Darkchylde' form within her.Stepping Disk Burden
- The farther she travels the less control she has. If she doesn't concentrate while teleporting she can inadvertently teleport through time as well as space. Going through time is far worse than simply traversing space; after such jaunts she is psychically drained and must regain her strength before attempting another great teleport. Magik has sense honed this ability and no longer has difficulty differentiating time and space with vast jumps.== Character Background ==
Illyana was born on the Soviet collective farm called the Ust-Ordynsky Collective, near Lake Baikal, in Siberia. Her brother, Piotr, saved her life when he suddenly manifested his mutation and saved her from a runaway tractor. Professor X recruited him to the X-Men shortly thereafter.
When she was six, she was kidnapped by a demon called Belasco, and taken to Limbo. Belasco told her that he loved her, and turned part of her soul into a Bloodstone. He planned to corrupt her sould and fill the Bloodstone to make her a very powerful demon. The Bloodstone also allowed Belasco to exert some sort of control over her.
Throughout her time in Limbo, Illyana was treated poorly. Belasco's demon servant, S'ym, would abuse her and beat her. However, after some time, she was rescued by a woman named Storm. She trained Illyana in the use of white magic, as well as combat. After a while, Illyana confronted Belasco. During their fight, she somehow manifested her life force to summon her signature weapon; the Soulsword. Belasco was defeated.
Illyana left Limbo, quite a bit older than before, but did not return home. With her newfound powers, she turned to fending for herself. She didn't necessarily have a grudge against her family, but because they did nothing to prevent her kidnapping, she figured she was best off on her own.
During her time alone, she was contacted by a member of the X-Men. They needed her help. They needed someone with experience in Limbo. Some mutant had taken control of Limbo, as well as the Bloodstone Amulet. Illyana, along with a few of the X-Men, made their way into Limbo to confront the mutant; Witchfire. The fight was long and difficult, but Magik was able to subdue her and confiscate the amulet.== Character Extras ==
