Asistan Ti are magic users. They have diminutive forms because of their reliance on magic for all their needs and purposes. Their experimentation with magic caused them to destroy their homeland of Peyi across the Bred Hav. During the Varlid War they joined with the Elyun to invade Varlid. They renamed the nation Patri Peyi and the main city Vil Peyi. Port Plaj is the renamed Mikachiari port in Aririnkatata. They speak the language Lang.
There are three types of Asistan Ti:
Nwa Chapo (black hat – attack magic) They staged the Black hat Rebellion against Prezidan Jules when they learned of the extent of the experiments on the Mikachiari.
Blan Chapo (white hat – defensive/curative magic) Fiercely loyal to Prezidan Jules and his objectives.
Gri Chapo (grey hat – weak defensive/weak attack magic) They were created by Prezidan Jules to replace the Nwa Chapo after the Black hat Rebellion.
They worship the Goddess of Magic, Deyes nan Majik and have Priests, Pret nan Majik that establish the rules for their society.
Prezidan Jules is the ruler over the Asistan Ti. There can only be one ruler and if anything should happen to him the next strongest Majik user (black or white) takes over.
Asistan Ti names reflect their magic types. There are only three supreme masters of magic at any one time. When one falls another rises in rank and strength to take its place. Once they attain their position their name changes to one of the following:
Nwa Chapo Yon Sel
Blan Chapo Yon Sel
Gri Chapo Yon Sel

Asistan Ti magic is used to power different objects in Varlid. The Asistan Ti magic is written in their bodies. When Teke finds out how this works she leads a group to create a virus to ‘undo’ their bodies.
