The Mystic Globe is an object on Shanazar that contains genies. Every five years, the Grand Vizier is sent with a group of child volunteers to the Mystic Mountain. There, the children touch the Mystic Globe and allow the genies to enter their body, giving the spirits a way of leaving the mountain. For the next five years, the children will be treated as royalty and have the ability to summon their genie in times of danger. However, after this period, the children will die.
