When worlds collide
The twins, Toman and Vera were adopted by the Godess Rehje soon after the Revelation. Rehje, without realising that there was no ambient magic in the world, attempted to teach the twins magic. They successfully cast the spell she attempted to teach them, but Rehje was horrified to realise that they had used a portion of their souls to power the magic. In an attempt to remedy her mistake, she infused a portion of her essence into the children, repairing the damage. This act had unforeseen consequences, vastly improving their magical abilities far beyond mortal levels, and seemingly extending their lives indefinitely. Over the centuries, the twins have practiced their craft, and travel the world passing on their knowledge.
