Ciemnian is a gender in the Mystian System (one of the four Nature Systems) related to shaded, mysterious nature magic or natural magic that feels unknown, looming, and filled with shadows and secrets It may or may not be an aesthetigender, and it can accompany any alignment (fiaspec, xiaspec, etc.) including being unaligned. The gender is related to nature but no particular part of nature (like trees, rivers, etc.), and is instead related to a quality of natural magic that is mischievous, cunning, and a bit wild. Since it relates to a quality of aspect and not necessarily any specific part of nature in and of itself, it can be combined with genders from all four of the Nature Systems to describe magical aspects of a more specific aspect of nature.
