Evocation or “calling a totem” is a specialized form of Fire Magic that involves manipulating the particles of the flame in order to turn the fire solid. The Evocation usually takes the form of a semi sentient animal or creature significant to the Witch. Sometimes referred to as a ‘Totem’.
An advanced technique involves integrating other elements into the creation of a totem, usually earth, to form a sturdier more physical form. This is a common practice for Summer Knights, witches that exclusively practice Earth and Fire magic.
