XI Levitate is a forbidden magic. This much is known only because of a mention that Zonpa-Zippa used it in one of his prototype Cardians to allow it to move by hovering about.

EtymologyEdit

The Japanese name is levitate. Levitation (from Latin levitas "lightness") is the process by which an object is held aloft, without mechanical support, in a stable position. Levitation is accomplished by providing an upward force that counteracts the pull of gravity (in relation to gravity on earth), plus a smaller stabilizing force that pushes the object toward a home position whenever it is a small distance away from that home position.
