A page explaining the various terms.
Demi Human War (亜人戦争): A war that lasted for ten years roughly 50 to 40 years earlier. Due to the actions of the Witch of Envy, Half Elves and other half races were considered to be heretical, with the prejudice extending to Demi Humans themselves. Amidst all of that, a Demi Human village was involved in a conflict with a Human village, and at a peace conference those sent from the castle were assassinated, leading both sides to claim that it was the other side's fault. The conflict eventually grew until it spread across Lugnica, lasting until the Demi Humans admitted that it wouldn't benefit anyone to keep on fighting, though they still claimed not to be responsible for the assassination. The decision to end the war was considered to have brought about by the Sword Saint's actions. Damage from the war existed deep within people and people still harbor prejudice against half races even if it isn't spoken aloud.

The elections spans for three years until the same day, which is the day a month before the ritual with Volcanica.

Od (オド): Od is energy that is present inside of a living thing from the beginning, making it the opposite of mana, which can be taken in from a being's surroundings. Unlike mana, using od is similar to using yourself, and so using it isn't recommended.
Od Laguna (オド・ラグナ): The Od Laguna is a storage of mana located at the origin of the world. No one knows where it is located or whether it has a will of its own. It is said that those who awaken to prohibited arts have had their spirits destroyed by looking at it. Some speculate that it is the world's will and gives Divine Protection to people.

Only halves and people who have been given the right by Echidna may take the trials. If anyone unworthy enters, they suffer ill effects such as feeling bad or getting injured. The effects are stronger the more the person is talented.
- The First Trial (第一の試練): The beginning phrase is "First off, face your past". The trial taker is shown their past and told to get rid of any regret by either accepting or rejecting their past. The trial is finished if the trial taker either accepts that they change or decides that they won't change.
- The Second Trial (第二の試練): The beginning phrase is "See the unimaginable present". The trial taker experiences themselves living a different life. The trial is finished if the trial taker chooses reality over their dream.
- The Third Trial (第三の試練): The beginning phrase is "Face the impending disaster". The trial taker becomes consciousness and is shown probable futures they will experience. The trial is finished if the trial taker chooses to keep on going even if they know that a tragic future is waiting for them.

- Roswaal and Beatrice's Gospel Book (ロズワールとベアトリスの福音書): Two complete gospel books created by Echidna for Roswaal and Beatrice. They allow the holder to use a limited version of the Book of Wisdom and only two exist in the entire world. Roswaal's book was destroyed by Ram and Beatrice disposed of hers to form a contract with Subaru.
- Witch Cult's Gospel (魔女教徒の福音): Incomplete gospel books that are given to potential Witch Cult members. They show the members a route to a future they desire through vague details. These books can only be read by the holder and appear to be incomprehensible to others.
Seasons (季節): The seasons in the world are categorized into “Red-Sun, Blue-Sun, Yellow-Sun, and Green-Sun”, with each matching a different elemental magic type.
Elf (エルフ): Elves are a race of Demi Humans known for their longevity and beauty. Because of the Witch of Envy, Elves were also the target of prejudice from others. Almost all Elves are currently frozen in Elior Forest.
Oni (鬼): The Oni are a strong race of Demi Humans known for their strong bodies and mana quality. Despite their strength, they are generally a peaceful race, and tend to live in villages in the mountains away from others. Most Oni have two horns, however those with one or no horns are known as Hornless (ツノナシ), and any Oni born with one horn are killed soon after birth. The village Ram and Rem lived in 10 years prior was the last Oni village, effectively making them the only two Oni left in the entire world. Roswaal remarks that the Oni's demise was because of natural selection, as they refused to accept new ideas, and not because of discrimination or prejudice.
Giant (巨人): Giants are a Demi Human race of massive people with tremendous strength. They fought in various places during wartime and because of that their numbers had dwindled. Currently, the only Giant in the royal capital is Rom.

There are three different classes of Spirits; Minute Spirits (微精霊 Biseirei), Quasi Spirits (準精霊 Junseirei), and Spirits (精霊 Seirei). There are also man made Spirits known as Artificial Spirits (人工精霊 Jinkou Seirei) which were created by the witch Echidna. Unlike Magic users, Spirit Users gather mana from outside their body.
Curse: A subcategory of spiritual and magical arts that originated from the country of Gusteko. The most notable traits about curses is they cannot be defend against once activated and they are most effective class of magic when comes to killing. However physical contract between the caster and target are mandatory for curse to work. Furthermore unlike mana-based magic, Curses are only limited to taking lives and have no other application in society beyond that. This caused the practice to become taboo leading it to fall out of favor among mainstream Magicians. Incidentally there are Demon Beasts such as Wolgarm who are capable of inflicting curse spells through their bites and stealing mana of the victim.
