Demotic Magic, more commonly called 'folk magic' is a broad category that includes any intentional, but otherwise informal or non-academically trained use of magic. The ability to ride and handle a galimshara requires the use of demotic magic. A zavian by definition does not use demotic magic. Wizards and other professional arcanists have traditionally regarded practitioners of demotic magic with some contempt. Legally demotic magic is problematic as it is necessary for many tradespeople and commoners in order to perform their functions and therefore if outlawed or heavily regulated would seriously harm trade and commerce. In practice, commonly used demotic magic, such as the law-lock, is rarely regulated.
