Alteration magic can be used to change the fundamentals of physics and biology. It can harden the caster's skin until it is like armor, cause a lock to pop open without a key, or burden an enemy with invisible weight. Alteration magic's greatest strengths are outside of combat. Many thieves and assassins make use of this school to benefit their careers.

Alteration is different to Illusion in that it alters the rules of nature, creating a reality that is recognized by everyone, rather than in the mind of the caster and the target.[1]

The first recorded use of Alteration was by the Ayleid community in the village that is known as Bravil. They used Levitation and Waterbreathing to escape the army of Teo Bravillius Tasus (whom the town was named after), a soldier of the Alessian Order.[2]
