The Magi were powerful god-like beings that once roamed the continents of Quintalis, aeons ago, in the 2nd Era . The majority of the Magi were ill-meaning and seemingly only existed to destroy all life, whilst no one knew where they had come from. A long war broke out between the Magi and the races of Quintalis, until the Ten , a group of powerful Espers banished every single one of them. Some say the Magi were merely imprisoned and continue to live on, waiting for the day they can exact revenge. This belief is firmly held by some, who are trying to bring upon the return of the Magi and have built a religious belief upon this.
