Whiteout (白滅 Howaitoauto) is a Caster-Type White Magic that gives the user the ability to control the volatility of an individual's Magic to enslave, nullify said Magic, use said Magic, or possibly overtake and fuse with the body of the targeted.
This White Magic allows the user to restrict the Magic of those they absorb, allowing them to erase their target's Magic to a state of zero usage or vice-versa make it to uncontrollable levels at their discretion. The process of "whiting out" the target starts by the user absorbing their Magic Power by simply pointing in their direction. Once “whited” the user has the ability to access multiple things: the whited’s Magic to utilize it at the expense of consuming a large amount of Magic Power to conduct, awareness of the whereabouts of those Magics they restrict, as well as the ability to manipulate the target who falls under their control, in turn making them the user's slave to a certain degree of where the caster could utter the word "die" which would then be followed up by the slave's death. This Magic can also be used to overtake an entity, fusing their body and personality within the overtaken. It's been noted that a "whited out" individual has the ability to invoke the same control onto a person by direct eye contact.
Side effects from this Magic can include the following:
- changes to personality
- the possibility for a whited out victim to die from Magic Deficiency Disease due to their Magic being untamed with extreme non-use
- if a whited out individual is consumed (i.e. a fifth generation Dragon Slayer consuming a Dragon Slayer to gain their Magic Power) then that Dragon Slayer will also become whited out and therefore under the user's control
- After a certain amount of time passes within a fused body, the user has the ability to use the overtaken's Magic but in a less proficient way
This Magic can also be used together by multiple users in a ritual to stabilize and harmonize Elentear's Magic Power after the destruction of the Alta Face as well as destroying its remaining hands all over Elentear.
