Empathy (Cruxworld)

Empathy in the Cruxworld is, first of all, not magic. Scarlet mages theorize and claim that both stem from the same basic force, but take entirely different forms. Empathy is also different from and - again, scarlet mages claim - is closer to magic than telepathy.

The most important points that prove empathy != magic are as follows.

The absolute worst thing for an empath is to experience to death of someone close to her - physically close, mostly. Witnessing a death, practically no empath can block out the feelings and lives through the experience with the victim. The result of experiencing death and staying alive is, more often than not, a comatose or catatonic empath. In some cases, it "only" causes severe mental trauma, leaving the empath more or less able to keep living his life. On occasion, the other extreme has been met - the empath may potentially die as well.
