This article is about the magic concept. For other uses, see Aura.

Aura refers to a magic field radiating from one’s body. As they would display one’s identity and emotional state, auras were only visible to those empathetic abilities.

History

Members of the Deathwok Clan were innately able to sense auras, and primarily used this for hunting. Lorne, instead, used this ability to read feelings and destiny while one would sing, as he would often do so in Caritas karaoke bar.[1] Sundrop, as a fairy, had these empathetic abilities as well, and described that the “negative energy” of anger turns an aura “blood red”.[2]

Exceptionally, some humans were also capable of sensing auras. The witch Tara Maclay discovered that something was wrong with Buffy Summers’ body, switched with Faith Lehane, describing: “A person’s energy has a flow, a unity. Buffy’s was fragmented; it grated, like something forced in where it doesn’t belong.”[3] Another example was the psychic Agnes Bellfleur.[4]

Auras were said to be potentially poisonous; in the case of the Harbingers of Death, their aura of evil was capable of rendering surrounding ground and living beings sterile.[5]

Notably, Amethyst crystals were used for cleansing one's aura,[6] and the Calendula marigold genus prevented the aura of whoever ingested its oil to be unreadable.[7]
