sympathetic link

A sympathetic link between two entities is a link that allows a magical practitioner to affect one entity by performing symbolic actions on the other or to bring the energy of one entity into a situation through manipulation of another entity.

The sympathetic link may exist via contagion– the previous contact of the two entities, or via the observable similarity of certain qualities that the two objects share. For magical use, the link must be sealed, generally by a declaration of the magic-user and the sympathetic object enlivened before it can be used to affect a target.
