Magical NotesEdit


To Banish a Former LoverEdit

Lost soul that causes me pain,
I banish you from whence you came.

Agares Vanquishing SpellEdit

Requires the Power of Three and holy water to be thrown at Agares.
From the ashes, his flames resurrect,
So their tortured souls he may collect,
No longer will his wicked deals persist,
