The Dovah School of Magi or The Thu'um, also referred to as Storm Voice or simply the Voice, is a form of magi that many germans and some others possess which utilizes the Dragon Language to form Dragon Shouts, of immense power. The word itself directly translates to the word "shout" in the Dragon language. At its lowest levels these Shouts allow for a german to communicate and carry a bond with a dovah, while at its highest levels a Dovah Magi would have the ability to create spells through speaking this language. Dovah Magi is also unique in that given to the Germans by the Dovah it has no connection to the larger Magi families meaning that unlike other Magi users they have no ability to use Magi outside of the Dovah family and their ability to enter the Fade is non existent.
Spells and Power
Dragons are able to master and use their Thu'um at will, as this sacred language is their natural language, inborn into their souls from the moment of their creation, (when dragons shout, breathing fire or frost at each other with the Thu'um they are actually having a deadly verbal debate). Mortals are only able to learn and use the Thu'um through a long process of meditation and the practice of the words. There are exceptions to this, these rare individuals are known as Dragonborns, those who are born with the body of a mortal but the soul of a dragon. The Dragonborn is able to intuitively learn Shouts and use them after absorbing the Souls of dragons, and with it the dragon's understanding of the words. As shown during "The Way of the Voice," they can also absorb knowledge from other individuals who have mastered specific words.
