Generic/Nonhuman Magic Classes

Primary difference between these and human magic classes: these make no use of demons (anti-Light entities) or the Light. (Light as mentioned in elemental magic is light, not Light; sunlight, moonlight, starlight, firelight, but not the Light.)

Notes: Various races will call each class a different name, so I'm going to just term them generically. Also, I'm not going to include warrior-magic crosses, as they should be self-explanatory; warrior-mages keep their proficiency with weaponry and physical combat, as well as all but the most difficult/refined magical skills of their particular class.

Pure Magic Classes

Elemental Magic
weather magic, the extended elements (water, fire, air, earth, metal, stone, crystal, as well as shadow and light)

Living Magic
plant magic (growth, cultivation, enhanced herbalism, alchemical herbalism, gardening/farming, wood magic), animal magic (behavioral aspects, senses, partial and/or full shapeshifting, herding/domestication, companionship/protection)

Speaking Magic
communion and interaction with gods/spirits/ancestors/living/dead, shared sensory input or full control of spirits/ancestors/living/dead, psyche magic/manipulation, sound/music magic

Raw Magic
arcane ('raw') magic, power storage/management, sensing/perception of magic use, manipulation of inanimate objects, use and charging of tools/objects, formal or ceremonial rituals/spells

Manipulation Magic
healing, cursing/hexing, buffing/debuffing, disease/plague, purify/cure, pain/exhaustion, peace/revival

Note: Manipulation magic is the physical side of speaking magic, which affects the personality/psyche, whereas manipulation affects the body/living spirit. Yes, the spirit is felt to be physical, far moreso than the mind.
