==Summary==
 
==Summary==
Operating out of [[Kamihama City]], the Wings of Magius' stated goal is to "release" magical girls from their fate. They claim the Doppel phenomenon that occurs in Kamihama is proof of this. In order to save magical girls, they protect the [[Rumor]]s of the city, though it is unclear why this would save magical girls. They also try and put Rumors and Witches together, for currently unknown reasons. Even the low-ranking members of the organization seem unaware of all the details.

{{spoiler|It is gradually revealed throughout the story that the existence of Rumors and Doppels, and their confinement to Kamihama, come from the powers of the three Magius. Touka has the ability to create Doppels, Nemu has the ability to create Rumors, and Alina has the ability to create barriers, including the one placed around Kamihama that allows Rumors and Doppels to exist within its limits. Witches and Rumors are used to harvest energy, which is in turn added to the Embryo Eve, a massive half-Witch growing beneath Hotel Fendt Hope. The Magius’s master plan is to hatch Embryo Eve into a full Witch when enough energy has been gathered, causing a release of energy massive enough to spread the barrier over Kamihama across the world, thereby allowing all Magical Girls on Earth to summon Doppels instead of turning into Witches. The Magius are aware this will cost millions of human lives, but see this as a necessary sacrifice to save Magical Girls.}}

The group gets its name from the organization's superiors, the three Magius. The rest of the group claim they act as the Magius's wings. Ranking just below the Magius are Mifuyu and {{Spoiler|Mami}}, with the rest of the White Feathers ranking below them and Black Feathers ranking below White Feathers. It is never clearly established how a Magical Girl’s rank is decided, as no one characteristic is clearly shown to designate a Magical Girl for status as a White Feather over a Black Feather. It is shown not to be related to seniority (as {{Spoiler|Momoko}} is shown to be a White Feather immediately after joining while longtime member Ikumi remained a Black Feather for the entire duration of her membership), age (as 15-year-old Ryo is a White Feather while 19-year-old Ikumi is a Black Feather) or magical power (as White Feather Mifuyu is established to be weak while Black Feather Shizuku is mentioned during [[Magia Record Story Wings in the Wind|Wings in the Wind]] to be stronger than most Black Feathers and was sought by Magius specifically because of her teleporting ability). Judging by {{Spoiler|Momoko}} and {{Spoiler|Mami}}’s quick promotions to White Feather rank, the deciding characteristic may be related to leadership ability, as White Feathers act as organizers to Black Feathers.

The group was disbanded at the end of Arc 1 of the story. While most of the former members of the Wings of Magius went off on their own or joined [[Kamihama Magia Union]], others regrouped with the goal of bringing [[Touka Satomi]] and [[Nemu Hiiragi]] back as their leader and attempted to kidnap them from Kamihama Magia Union before they were thwarted. Originally led by [[Shigure Miyabi]] and [[Hagumu Azumi]], it has since been taken over by [[Himena Aika]] at the end of Arc 2 Chapter 2.
 
 
 
Their philosophy centers around Touka's Old discarded theory called "Magical Girl Supremacism(魔法少女至上主義)" - a belief that Magical Girls are inherently superior to normal humans because the strength of their emotions allows them alone to make wishes and combat entropy.

Please refrain from reading if you are not yet familiar with all the latest media released.

The Wings of the Magius (マギウスの翼 Magius no Tsubasa) are an organization of magical girls from the mobile game Magia Record. They act as the game's main antagonists.

After the group was officially disbanded at the end of Part 1, several of the remaining members regrouped and have been rebranded as Neo-Magius (ネオマギウス).

Summary

Operating out of Kamihama City, the Wings of the Magius' stated goal is to "release" magical girls from their fate. They claim the Doppel phenomenon that occurs in Kamihama is proof of this. In order to save magical girls, they protect the Rumors and Witches of Kamihama and try to lure more Witches to the city, disregarding the casualties these methods cause. They also try and put Rumors and Witches together, so that the Witches may prey upon the humans imprisoned by the Rumors. Even the low-ranking members of the organization seem unaware of all the details.

It is eventually revealed that the thing they wish to release magical girls from is the fate of becoming witches.

It is gradually revealed throughout the story that the existence of Rumors and Doppels, and their confinement to Kamihama, come from the powers of the three Magius. Touka has the ability to create Doppels, Nemu has the ability to create Rumors, and Alina has the ability to create barriers, including the one placed around Kamihama that allows Rumors and Doppels to exist within its limits. Witches and Rumors are used to harvest energy, which is in turn added to the Embryo Eve, a massive half-Witch growing beneath Hotel Fendt Hope. The Magius’s master plan is to hatch Embryo Eve into a full Witch when enough energy has been gathered, causing a release of energy massive enough to spread the barrier over Kamihama across the world, thereby allowing all Magical Girls on Earth to summon Doppels instead of turning into Witches. The Magius are aware this will cost millions of human lives, but see this as a necessary sacrifice to save Magical Girls.

The group gets its name from the organization's superiors, the three Magius. The rest of the group claim they act as the Magius's wings. Ranking just below the Magius are Mifuyu and Mami, with the rest of the White Feathers ranking below them and Black Feathers ranking below White Feathers. It is never clearly established how a Magical Girl’s rank is decided, as no one characteristic is clearly shown to designate a Magical Girl for status as a White Feather over a Black Feather. It is shown not to be related to seniority (as Momoko is shown to be a White Feather immediately after joining while longtime member Ikumi remained a Black Feather for the entire duration of her membership), age (as 15-year-old Ryo is a White Feather while 19-year-old Ikumi is a Black Feather) or magical power (as White Feather Mifuyu is established to be weak while Black Feather Shizuku is mentioned during Wings in the Wind to be stronger than most Black Feathers and was sought by Magius specifically because of her teleporting ability). Judging by Momoko and Mami’s quick promotions to White Feather rank, the deciding characteristic may be related to leadership ability, as White Feathers act as organizers to Black Feathers.

Organization

Black Feathers

The lowest ranking members of the group. Black Feathers, sometimes called Black Wings, are magical girls wearing hooded black cloaks. They are portrayed in the game as generic mook enemies. However there are a few notable members:

  • Part 1: Let’s be the wings of the future for magical girls
  • Part 2: Let’s unite the wings, and try not to carelessly tell anyone what we’re doing.
  • Part 3: If you wish to invite someone to join, please discuss it with a white feather first. Invite only those who already know about witches.
  • Part 4: We will not reveal our identities, even to each other.
  • Part 5: We will tell someone if our work may interfere with our private lives.
  • Part 6: We will do our work assignments in groups of two or more.
  • Part 7: We will collect Grief Seeds and preserve them as much as possible.
  • Part 8: Witches and Uwasa are necessary for liberation. We will protect them.

Trivia

  • Nemu Hiiragi and Touka Satomi's Witch names are Pennen Nenemu and Pennen Nolde, respectively. In addition to being named after characters from Kenji Miyazawa's works, "penne" is the plural form of the Latin word "penna", meaning "feather" or, more appropriately, "wing". This references the fact that the Magius (specifically Nemu and Touka, as Alina is not aligned with their goal of salvation) function as the wings, with their followers being the individual feathers that cover or support them.
  • Generally speaking, most members of Wings of the Magius are so weak that they wear robe of same style to protect themselves from being identified. However, game players and animation viewers can still identify some of them by their hair styles or part of clothing.
