Magic color (魔導色 Madōshoku)[1] refers to the default color of the magical energy aura (魔力光 maryoku hikari) released by a mage.[2] It is most commonly seen in the magic circles, but also in spells, projectiles and barriers etc.

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

The Movie 1st and 2nd Commentary Tracks introduce the idea of Magic Color Divination, or predicting a mage's personality from their magic color. It is acknowledged that these are not guaranteed, but have a high degree of accuracy and are really just something "done for fun". In the cases of mixed colors or shades, the primary color displays dominant traits and the secondary color shows lesser traits.

Color Personality Traits
Light Blue Positive and Optimistic
Blue Serious and Straitlaced
Purple Responsible and Deeply Affectionate
Red Passionate and Direct
Orange Empathetic and Deeply Emotional / Passionate[3]
Yellow Kind and Well-mannered / Gentle and Polite[3]
Gold Described as being 'rare' / A combination of Yellow traits and Pride[3]
Pink Virtuous and Focused / Innocence and Sincerity
White Abundant Natural Talent
Tea Simple and Calm
Green Kind and Gentle
Black or Gray Knowledgeable and Intelligent
