In the world of Neotopia, people are able to conjure magic through marble-like "shards". These practitioners are called Shard Casters. With the power of the Shards, the Shard Casters are able to cast spells in combat and control monsters called "Spirits". Casters are easily identified by having mysterious symbols located anywhere on their body. Slots for shards can be found along these symbols which usually encircle them.
Shards grant the power to use various magical techniques.
Dimensional Shifting Edit
A method of teleportation through the use of Shifting Shards. There are multiple methods of Dimensional Shifting, those most common method is by using five Shifting Shards and placing them on the ground. Doing so will activate a portal on the ground; anyone standing on the portal will be transported to a specific or random location.
Distance Movement Edit
A spell for quick movement in relatively small distances. Move Shards are necessary to perform this. When activated, the user charges an electric sphere field and then turns into a lightning bolt that shoots upward; upon reaching its destination, an electric sphere appears along with the Shard Caster.
Elemental Spells Edit
One of the most basic skills learned by a Shard Caster is to conjure elements by using Spell Shards. A caster may summon a single or multiple shards at once and throw them at enemies to turn into an elemental attack. The color of the shard does not necessarily determine the element summoned as demonstrated by blue spell shards being used in fire, ice, and water. However, it seems true that a spell shard can only contain one element at a time.
- Earth: Can be summoned by dark yellow spell shards.
- Fire: Can be summoned by red spell shards. Blue or purple fire may be summoned by their respective color of spell shards and Dark Flames are summoned by black spell shards.

- Lightning: Can be summoned by yellow spell shards.
- Water: Can be summoned by blue spell shards.

Hugh has the ability to manipulate people through the use of a purple spell shard. He used this on Princess Rebecca to have her assassinate her own father, King Bakkam. The shard was placed on Rebecca's nape and the spell seems to be a form of puppetry as "strings" were shown when it was used.
Sealing or binding is a skill demonstrated by Master Zico early in the series. This was done by using spell shards and placing them on an enemy. Upon activation, the spell shards create a binding web to incapacitate foes.
A technique used by Jesara, Roya's mother, in her last moments facing Despara. She transferred her soul into Despara as she was dying from a fire spell cast on her. Jesara was hoping that Roya would survive her fall, and by planting her soul into Despara, she would then be able to protect her daughter in the future.
Shards can also be used in weaponry. Shard Casters can use metallic tools that can project energy blades in battle. They typically have several round slots for Spell Shards to be inserted. Once the slots are filled, the tool generates an energy blade. The energy projected by weapons vary in color, which have no evident significance. A weapon blade may appear with the color Blue, Red, Yellow, Magenta, or Green.
