A Parasympathetic Arcane Deviation (PAD) is a human with an altered anatomy as a result of parasympathetic magic, or in other words, cellular amounts of magic cast subconsciously in the early stages of life that can change how the body was formed, adding additional appendages such as tails or wings.The exact cause of these kinds of mutations in humans has yet to be scientifically determined.

With magic on the rise in humans, PADs were first seen after Year Zero, with nearly 1 in 50 children being born with altered anatomies. Tails were the most common mutations, but animal ears were also prominent, alongside angelic wings, animistic eyes, and rarely claws or even reptilian scales.
