Mesmers are a type of Talented elf. They are able to put people in trances. They are very rare and monitored by the Council because they can be dangerous.
Mesmers are able to mesmerize people to do things that the Mesmer wishes them to do. Their victims are fully conscious during the mesmerizing process, just unable to stop it.
- Grady doesn't like to talk about his abilities because his friends stopped trusting him in his school years. He was even teased by Edaline's parents about mesmerizing their daughter into marriage. His limit of amount of people he can mesmerize at once is said to be around 24. Grady also hates being enhanced because he gets out of control.
- Councillor Ramira is a mesmer too.
Examples of Mesmerizing Edit
Grady mesmerized the Councillors into slapping themselves in the face and forced Brant to hold his hand in a ball of Everblaze, burning his hand. He also made Edaline wave her hands around like a "flailing octopus". Also in Everblaze, Grady made King Dimitar punch himself in the nose when he was threatening to take Sophie to Ravagog. In Nightfall Grady makes Fintan unlock the door to the exit and then makes Fintan knock himself out. That ends up in Vespera smashing Biana into the mirrors.
