Beast Magic, also known as Animal Magic, is magic that involves animals (any life that can move), such as summoning animals including mammals (including humans), birds, reptiles (such as snakes, dinosaurs, or dragons), fish, etc. or empowering the user with animal-based attacks. This also includes mamodos (beast-like or humanoid) and artificial mamodos.
Definition of "Animal"
Animals (Kingdom Animalia) are scientifically living organisms that feed on organic matter, typically having specialized sense organs and nervous system and able to respond rapidly to stimuli. They are one of the six kingdoms of life on Planet Earth, along with plants (plantae), fungi (fungi), protists (protista), eubacteria (eubacteria), and archaebacteria (archaebacteria).
In casual terms, animals are often referred to as non-human animate creatures as humans often not see each other as "animal", but the modern humans species (genus Homo sapiens) are scientifically categorized as an animal (categorized under the Kingdom Animalia) and as a species of great ape (genus Hominidae).
By the scientific definition, mamodos are also be considered to be animals ("magical animals" to be exact), having the ability to move and think on their own will, as well having basic animal survival needs such as food and water.
Animal comes from the Latin word anima, which stands for "life," "mind," or "spirit." The prefix anim- has the same definition.
