In the world of Remalze, there are 7 Mystic arts that have become commonplace to the inhabitants of the world. These arts each teach not only how to defend one's self but also teach the user how to control Rem in ways relating to nature and the elements. Not everyone chooses to study one of the seven mystic arts but those who do are known as Remmancers. When one becomes a Remmancer they are marked at one of the 7 Rem points in the world that determines their art and unlocks their ability to control Rem. It is possible for a Remmancer to learn and master more than 1 of the 7 arts but to do so is dangerous as there are chances of Rem element conflicts when taking on an opposite Rem into one's body for the mark. Those choosing to take on multiple Rem marks need be wary of the dangers and strong-willed to resist them. There is also a trait known as Rem Affinity that every person is born with. This tells the type of art that would come naturally to you if you choose to become a Remmancer. Each Style has a grandmaster that heads the teachings of the Arts as well as a bestows ranks upon Remmancers.
