The Spiral is one of the fourteen main Entities. The Spiral is among the most mysterious, largely due to its nature, which involves distortion, impossible geometry and maddening realms and dimensions. The Spiral's motivations are not yet fully known, however it has been shown to create areas of distortion in our world. Jurgen Leitner and his assistants refer to it as "Es Mentiras" ("It is lies").

Recurring characters and conceptsEdit

  • The most encountered manifestation or avatar of The Spiral is Michael who can open doors in various places that lead to other places, occasionally to another place in our world, usually to an endless labyrinth.
  • Helen Richardson was taken by one such door. She replaces Michael at the end of MAG 101.

Connections with other powersEdit

  • Its allegiances are difficult to fully know. It seems to want balance or a delay in events as Michael explained in the tunnels when combating Not Sasha.
  • It also helped the real Sasha fight a manifestation of The Hive.
  • It seems to be in a tentative alliance with Beholding (although this seems only to prevent other Entities from gaining power)
  • It seems to actively fight against The Corruption, and more frequently against The Stranger.
