The Sebai ritual is the most powerful magical act which the Iskai are capable of. It can be performed by anyone with a slight magical talent. If an adult touches the newborn's Trii against his, he can transfer his entire self into the spirit of the child. They can begin life anew; the body of the adult dies at the time of the ceremony. It is forbidden to perform the ritual without the Council of Jirinaar's approval. Besides the abduction of a newborn, this is the worst crime there is. Only a few special people, the Chosen, can undergo the ritual. The ritual also cannot be carried out without the newborn's mother's consent. Usually it is the partner or sister of the Chosen one. If the ritual is performed, the Chosen one receives the title of Sebai, followed by a number which indicates how often he or she has been through the ritual.
