Dawn-Colored Sunlight (明け色の陽射し Akeiro no Hizashi?) is a magic cabal led by Leivinia Birdway. Their goal is to eliminate the distinction and separation between the Science Side and the Magic Side, then rule over both of these sides.[2]


The Dawn-Colored Sunlight is stated to be a guard against organizations who wields great power and controls a large number of people, keeping an eye on these influential forces.[3] In the past the group went under a different name, but took the current one to infiltrate the Golden Dawn magic cabal that was set up by the famous magician Aleister Crowley as one of the affiliated sub-groups, and their loyalty is currently only with Birdway. They are also known to cause damage in 10 areas for the sake of a single goal as well as apparently doing inhuman things to Necessarius in the past.[4] They have a very large personnel network that is not only concentrated in England but are scattered all over the world.[5]

It is considered one of the leading and most powerful magic cabals in England and the whole world to the point that they can stand on the same level as representatives of entire nations.[6] It is the largest Golden-style cabal in Europe.[1]

Due to the organization becoming more like one of the cabals from "Golden Dawn," Dawn-Colored Sunlight specializes in constructing sanctuaries and harnessing large amounts of Telesma to conduct large-scale powerful magic.[citation needed]


Leivinia regarding her subordinates as "small gears" within a larger plan

The Dawn-Colored Sunlight is led by Leivinia. As the leader, she set magicians from the Dawn-Colored Sunlight around her sister Patricia to watch and protect her because even though she is not directly involved with the cabal, she is valuable in areas related to the cabal.[7]

Though their organization is large, they divided up their assets as much as possible and gathered only the necessary things and people at one of their bases when they were needed to perform some kind of ceremonial magic. These bases were not strange secret lairs. Instead, they were apartments or other kinds of rented rooms.[8]

The Dawn-Colored Sunlight is at odds with various organizations, including Necessarius, New Light, and GREMLIN.[9][10][11]


Originally it wasn't a magic cabal like they are now. The organization existed before the world was split into the Science side and the Magic side. Even the name "Dawn-Colored Sunlight" is not their organization's original name. The Dawn-Colored Sunlight originally existed to investigate those who stand above other people, and study the charisma and qualities of such people. They wanted to document all that and eventually use the knowledge to rule above everyone else. It's like a form of world domination. Then came the "Golden Dawn" - the biggest magic cabal in England in the 19th Century. To their organization, the way the Golden Dawn stood above the people was a miracle. They decided to sneak in as part of them and investigate them from the inside. Over time, their organization became more and more like magic cabals. Their current objective is to eventually regain their old power and rule over the world they are in right now.[12]

Their leader, Leivinia Birdway was one of the listeners whom Queen Elizard reached using the Union Jack. Despite the war raging outside, Leivinia tells Mark Space not to get involved with it. Mark tells her that this could be their chance to analyze Curtana, but Leivinia replies that if they tried anything, it will only anger the Queen, reiterating that they need to stay out of it and under the radar. Mark Space notifies that Patricia has already left looking quite excited, to which Leivinia orders Mark to get her back.[13]
