Black Circle Response to EIS Report #02116099-03948831-001

WARNING: This is a Black Circle Clearance Report. If you are not a member of the Black Circle of the Republic of Earth then reading further in this report is a Federal Offence to the Republic of Earth, and you could be silenced.
After me and Agent Zhou, Lorca’s top Lieutenants, and Rank A Black Circle Agents, argued for Lorca for hours. We have decided to explain to you what is happening. Though don’t tell Lorca, we had to tie him up and stick him in a closet.
Well we’ll start by saying this. You seem to have magical potential, specifically in the Light magic department. However, you have not yet awakened to being able to use the power, and most likely never will unless we, the Black Circle, use our skills to awaken you. This means you will never be able to actually use this magic.
Now I know what you’re thinking. Magic? What is that? Well magic is something that humans, and human descendant races have access to. We don’t know its origin, but we do know that if the Yajixa ever learn of this potential they will attempt to use it against us with the Zari, Evraibra, Fainavbra, and Athakarins all of which are under their control.
All I will tell you is that it is the Black Circle’s duty to hide magic from the Yajixa at all costs. Normally we would have to give you a choice of ‘making you disappear’ or ‘silencing the magic in you’, but since you are a Commander of the Republic of Earth, we are instead going to have to let this slide. Regulations don’t apply to this situation.
So here’s the deal Sylvia. If anything like this happens again, don’t tell anyone. Its better that nobody knows. You’re not insane. This is normal for 5% of the population currently. In ancient times, during the World Wars era, magic only was in about 0.01% of people, however it has been strengthening over the years. Even a thousand years ago it was only 0.5% of humanity that had it. It seems to be increasing exponentially, and the Black Circle is having trouble silencing it all. I myself theorize that within a decade, the Black Circle will be forced to expose magic to the population, because the numbers are showing that it will by nearly 10% of humanity within 10 years time. At that point, there will be no stopping it.
