Wild, you must have heard me musing over child!Thorn psychically. 

(Actually, I have an unrelated question, regarding magic in your world, does it call come and/or tie into elemental spirits?

And retroactively? Because that's one of the sketches I drew a few months ago ^_^;

Spirits are basically made of magic, so yeah, it's all connected. If you want something done with magic, there are three ways to pull it off: do the spell yourself (if you're a practiced mage), have a piece of spelltech crafted to handle it (like the crystalline not-phones the characters use), or ask/compel a spirit to do it. Most Ceannic city plumbing systems are powered by water spirits, for instance.

So a mage type character doesn't necessarily have to have a spirit critter then. Okay. I was thinking about a mage-ish type character who uses what little electrical manipulation they can  to power an electrified ukulele. Would that work?

Yeah, Holly and co. are human.

Their power system isn't electricity-based, so I don't think they would think of it! Easier to take a regular ukelele and use a spell to amplify the sound.

I see. Thank you! And if I don't get the opportunity to say this before the first, Happy New Year!
