Spell to trace the lineage of men and beasts

Here is a few spells of Ars Magica using the Faerie Target: Bloodline. These allow the caster to trace blood relatives for themselves, other humans, and animals. I thought this might be handy for a wizard interested in fertility and the gift, but also to find those members of their extended family they might be unaware of (and of course for dealing with horse traders).

Each effect could probably be made slightly lower level by designing a more specialized spell, but given how niche the effects are that would be wasteful of seasons. A base guideline level 10 is heavy-handed, but allows a lot of breadth and forgiveness.

Blood of My Blood

Intellego Corpus / Imagonem 30, R: Personal, D: Concentration, T: Bloodline. Faerie.

The caster gains an awareness of every blood relative, and by concentrating can focus on specific members to determine their physical health, state in terms of awake or asleep, age, visual appearance, and location. When learned the spell is tailored for the caster’s bloodline to avoid warping.

(Base 10 to know all information about a body, +1 Conc, +3 Bloodline)

a blood arcane connection

And as a variation, here is the same effect raised to R: Touch, to allow a caster to trace the lineage of a touched person.

The Seed is Strong

Intellego Corpus / Imagonem 35, R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Bloodline. Faerie.

The caster gains an awareness of every blood relative of the target touched, and by concentrating can focus on specific members to determine their physical health, state in terms of awake or asleep, age, visual appearance, and location. When learned the spell is tailored for the caster’s bloodline to avoid warping.

(Base 10 to know all information about a body, +1 Touch, +1 Conc, +3 Bloodline)

And lastly a variation to trace the lineage of animals, for the purposes of discerning pure breeding.

The Line Breeds True

Intellego Animal / Imagonem 35, R: Touch, D: Concentration, T: Bloodline. Faerie.

The caster gains an awareness of every blood relative of the target animal touched, and by concentrating can focus on specific members to determine their physical health, state in terms of awake or asleep, age, visual appearance, and location.

(Base 10 to know all information about a body, +1 Touch, +1 Conc, +3 Bloodline)

I suppose there could also be versions for Herbam too, although I don’t think that would get used often; and probably couldn’t make use of the Bloodline Target either.
