As I have mentioned before, magic always comes with a price. Sometimes, the price of using magic becomes so steep that it takes a serious toll on your body. In my third fantasy book, one of the characters will perform magic that is so costly that it causes their body to deteriorate beyond recognition. Despite being in their mid-30s, this character will look significantly older than they really were and become hideously deformed. I will be drawing inspiration from the deformities that Supreme Leader Snoke and Darth Sidious sustained throughout the Star Wars sequel trilogy.
