Reincarnation was a type of magic involving the rebirth of an entity's soul into a new body. A rare and powerful ability typically unique to gods and their kin, it allowed the affected user to live new lives in a continuous cycle.
Conventional reincarnation allowed the being with the ability to be reborn into a new life after death in a continuous, predetermined cycle. After the affected individual had died, the soul was born again in a new body some time after, giving them a certain degree of immortality. The reincarnated bodies produced in the predestined cycle typically resembled the original body of the soul reincarnating. However, the soul could also incarnate in another, preexisting body should it be unoccupied. Similarly, the soul could incarnate into a different kind of physical being.
Reincarnation could also be achieved through magical techniques and technologies. In the case of magical techniques, a ritual could be performed that would reincarnate the affected target to a being of the target's choosing. With magical technology, a reincarnated body could be naturally produced by implanting a woman with a "seed", producing a fetus. The body's ability as a vessel for the intended soul varied based on the mother's magical ability among other factors, making it an overall delicate process.
While reincarnation cycles were predetermined, a reincarnation born from preexisting parents could be disrupted by interference with the intended parents from a third party, causing the soul to reincarnate in a different body earlier than the cycle's course. Due to the rules of the Third Period, any being that reincarnated on the ground world had any prior memories sealed, though some memories could be unintentionally retained or reawakened.
