Adepts and Characters in Piers Anthony novels

Most of the adepts in Phaze are named after colors. Each has a unique mode of magic.

The Adepts and their powers:

  • Blue Adept: Blue uses singsong. More specifically, music summons his magic and words define it.
  • Yellow Adept: Yellow uses potions. An old women who uses potions to appear young. She captures wild and magical animals to sell to other Adepts. Sort of became Stiles friend.
  • Red Adept: Red uses amulets.
  • White Adept: White draw sigils in the ground. The surface doesn't matter.
  • Black Adept: Black has power over lines. Black can create anything (a castle, a dragon) out of lines.
  • Green Adept: Green has power over fire. Green's magic is invoked through hand gestures.
  • Orange Adept: Orange has the power over vegetation.
  • Purple Adept: Purple's magic involves geology (e.g., creating earthquakes). Magic comes from the Ground.
  • Brown Adept: Brown has the power to make and animate golems. A lonely young girl who befriends Stiles and the Unicorns.
  • Grey Adept: This Adept is introduced in the second book of the series, Blue Adept (p. 168), but is never brought up again in any of the seven books. Grey's magic is unknown.
  • Translucent Adept: Translucent has the power over water and the creatures of the water.
  • Tan Adept: Tan's power is called "The Evil Eye." Tan can use this power on a person once to compel them to follow any set of commands.
  • Clef Adept: Clef never had a color. He was the one chosen to play the "platinum flute" to juxtapose the frames of Phaze and Proton. His only ability lies with the flute.
  • Robot Adept: This title officially belongs to Mach, the son of Citizen Blue and Sheen. He used the Book of Magic to become an instant Adept. However, in Juxtaposition, Sheen is also referred to as the Robot Adept. She also had to use the book-of-magic and as a result became Adept.
  • Unicorn Adept: This is the son of Mach and Fleta, Flach.
  • Hectare Adept: An alien named Weva. She is part wolf, bat, and human. Her Proton aspect, Beman, is part Hectare (BAM), robot, and human. He/She was born under the West Pole of Phaze, and trained by the Animal-heads that lived there. There is an assumption, although it is never stated, that she was trained from the Book of Magic and therefore isn't limited in her mode of magic.

Note: Due to the use of the book-of-magic, which contains all forms of Adept magic, Robot and Unicorn are not limited in the method in which they invoke their magic.

  • Cyborgs: Humanoid Robot Bodies with Human Brains. Very unstable.
  • Androids: Humanoid Bodies made of Protoflesh.
  • Robots: Machines, some look humanoid, and some are self-willed.

  • Adept Yellow: Creates Potions.
  • Adept Black: Lines are the source of his Magic.
  • Adept White: Create Symbols on the Ground to activate Magic.
  • Adept Purple: Magic comes from the Ground.
  • Adept Red: Creator of Magic Amulets.
  • Adept Brown: Creator of Golems.
  • Adept Tan: Possessor of the Evil Eye.
  • Adept Orange: Creates Magic through Plants.
