    the dark rift

    i think the dark rift is the barrrier to the other world and i think some of these "humans" are actually monsters like the fanalis are... i think solomon just gave everyone a human form in the new world to avoid any potential beef... the people who cant use magic are the "others" while the people who can are descendants of the humans from alma torran which is why there are "goi" and magicians. if you think about it the djinn let goi use magic, but only one type, just like the other creatures cause they only had access to one through the staffs

    i have to go to work but i just wanted to get this out of the way before i head out. what do you guys think?

    In chapter 222 the great rift is shown back in Alma Torran.From the early translation it seems that it's a place that's in an unfinished state inside the world created by Illa where the law of physics don't apply, even light can't get in, hence why it's always dark in there.It's not connected to another world it seems.In Alma Torran it was inhabited by the Fanalis(who have another name) and the original dragon.When Solomon created the new world he had the same dilemma as Illa, and decided to let the place unfinished(that's lazy if you ask me). Just like in Alma Torran the Fanalis live there, as for how they're able to take a human form, Solomon must have granted them that power to avoid for them to be discriminated by humans.I doubt that other species live there, the closest thing to the other species in the new world is the household members who got assimilated.

    We have a spoilers thread for spoilers, don't we.

    Re: the dark rift

    Yeah, I agree with your theory for the most part thread starter, I think for whatever reason Solomon's laws force non-humans to take human form and assimilation with a metal vessel removes that law the further you assimilate. And actually the Fanalis didn't inhabit the great rift in Alma Toran, I'm pretty sure they lived on another continent far from the church. And I don't think either Illa or Solomon were lazy regarding the great rift, because as we learn the nature of Illa it's becoming implied that Illa isn't capable of laziness. Illa may not even be capable of any thought at all, so the great rift may be something Illa has little control over and it may simply exist as a borderline between the endless number of worlds that even Solomon could not deal with. I recently played a game called Bravely Default in which there was a great chasm that linked infinite parallel worlds together like a massive interdimensional tunnel and that's sort of what I think the great rift in Magi is like in a sense. I don't know why the Fanalis are there now, but by the time this arc is over and if we do see them, it'll probably be not only clear why but also clear what the great rift is for.

    Hardly, Solomon neutered them. He took away their fangs and claws, and though its not 100% certain they likely had very tough hides. In the New World they are simply super-strong humans, but in the Old World they were the paragons of Survival.

    ...and considering their natural attitude (read: homicidal) its was probably for the best (at least for the humies).
    Don't look for easy answers to difficult questions.
    Truth is often hiding in plain sight, we are blind to see it.
