The Forbidden Lands
The Forbidden Lands are home to the majority of the sorcerers of Torian. They rarely leave their home due to their belief that the mortals in inferior and not worth their time.
The sorcerers are split into ten family lines that where each line has a specific power set. The strongest of each line is called the Head of that line, and in charge of everyone it the Head or Heart of that generation. In each generation there are two exceptionally gifted sorcerers born. One Head and one Heart. They get powers from at least four or five lines. When the current leader dies they both come into their full powers. Then they find each other and fight to the death. The winner becomes the new Head or Heart depending how their powers manifest.
The Head thinks logically and acts purely on instinct and is normally the stronger one. The Heart thinks emotionally and acts after more thought, and normally is the smarter one.
Powers for each sorcerer are discovered at puberty when they come in. From there they are gifted their lineage marks by the Head of the sorcerers. These marks appear as tattoos on their lower neck and forever show the lines they stem from. A child inherits one power line from each parent. Most sorcerers only have one child and so they can choose which line to give their child when they decide to have one. Once their powers come in a sorcerer can then choose which line they want to study more as their dominant power. Sometimes the skill is obvious and the power chose them. They can live in any of the lands they have powers from.
