Eiko uses Wht Mag.

Use recovery/support magic.

Wht Mag (白魔法, Shiro Mahō?, lit. White Magic) is a skillset in Final Fantasy IX for Dagger and Eiko, (聖白魔法, Seishiro Mahō?, lit. Holy White Magic) in Beatrix's case. The spells focus on healing and support with a single damaging spell, Holy, and some offensive status inflicting spells. Of the two permanent party members, Eiko is more geared toward White Magic than Dagger, who is more focused on summon magic.


For Dagger and Eiko the spells are learned from equipment by amassing Ability Points during battle. Beatrix has a fixed skillset.

Cure, Cura, and Curaga ignore target's Magic Defense when determining heal amount.

Base = Spell Power[1]
Bonus = Mag ... [(Lv + Mag) / 8] + Mag
HP Restored = Base * Bonus

The bonus gets + 50% if Concentrate is equipped. Shell, multi-targeting the spell and being under Mini halve the Bonus.

The formula for Life is as follows:

[((Target's Spirit + 5) * Target's Max HP) / 100]

Full-Life restores the target's HP with the following formula:

[((Target's Spirit + 100) * Target's Max HP) / 100][1]

If Concentrate is equipped, the amount of HP restored is doubled for both Life and Full-Life.

Formula for Holy is as follows:

Base = Spell Power - Target's Magic Defense[1]
Bonus = Mag ... [(Lv + Mag) / 8] + Mag
Damage = Base * Bonus

Might cumulatively increases Strength till 99, upon when it will not increase further.

The formula for Might is as follows:

[(Strength * 125)/100][2]

The effect lasts for the entire battle, even if the character is KO'd and revived. During Trance Eiko's Wht Mag turns into Dbl Wht (W白魔法, W Shiro Mahō?, lit. Double White Magic) where she can cast two spells in succession, each expending MP and the Trance gauge independently, although sometimes enemies can get a turn in-between the castings.

Wht Mag spells can be reflected and countered with Return Magic. With Reflect-Null Dagger and Eiko can bypass targets' Reflect status with their White Magic.

Wht Mag command is sealed in Oeilvert. During the time Dagger is going through emotional turmoil her Wht Mag command can fail.

White magic has traditionally referred to the use of supernatural powers or magic for good and selfless purposes. With respect to the philosophy of left-hand path and right-hand path, white magic is the benevolent counterpart of malicious black magic. Because of its ties to traditional pagan nature worship, white magic is often also referred to as "natural magic".
