Hypnosis was a kind of mind manipulation magic. A powerful and terrifying art, it involved the manipulation of thoughts, memories, and perceptions.
Hypnosis involved the complete manipulation of a target's thoughts, memories, and perceptions through suggestion or direction by the caster, causing the effected to remember or believe things potentially different from reality or their independent mind. Therefore, the user could alter their appearance in the target's mind or convince them they were someone or something else; through this power, the caster could even change targets' loyalties or make something completely ignorable regardless of what it was.
The hypnosis spell could be cast upon a single, conscious target through direct eye contact, signaled by the user's eyes glowing green. The technique could also be projected in a field within a large range, affecting everyone in the area; as a result, the technique could also be used to affect the caster in the same way as other targets. While being cast, the hypnosis was capable of simulating human interactions such as eating, moving, touching and talking to those under its effects.
Despite its terrifying power, hypnosis requires a tremendous amount of magic to use and maintain for continuous periods of time in which only the most powerful of mages are capable of casting it on a large scale. Should the technique not be continuously applied, the affected target could naturally break free of the spell over time or resist the spell outright, especially if the target possessed strong magical power. Similarly, the target could break free of the spell if strong memories directly related to the subject of the hypnosis are triggered. Otherwise, the hypnosis remained completely undetectable to even discerning eyes while under its effects.
