Before magic became systemized, it was believed that the power to heal others was something that had to be borrowed from the gods. Therefore, white magic was entrusted to shrine maidens and holy men. The sage's surplice was then made based on the garb worn by a person considered the holy men of a certain village when people who worshipped the gods first began gathering in groups.
