I'm a bit confused here. It sounds like you can study all you want, increasing your ability all the while. But, as soon as you actually use it, it's frozen and your soul dies. Does the body keep living? Is using mysticism an inherently evil act, or just misguided?

So it's like Mysticism in that once you actually use it, it's stuck? Is a revealed part permanently manifested (like you always have claws) or does it only show up when being used?
