The Bureau of Magical Things Plot: What is it about?
The Bureau of Magical Things, as is evident from its name, is a story about the existence of magical beings in our world. Kyra is magically transformed into a Tri-ling when she finds herself caught in between the clash of an elf and a fairy. Now that she is part human, fairy and elf, she find new friends in Lily (a fairy) and Imogen (an elf) who introduce her to their secret world. She joins a magic school with them headed by Professor Maxwell. Here, Kyra learns how to control her newfound magical powers and begins to lead a double life. While leading a double life, several goof-ups happen at the school when Kyra, Lily and Imogen are handed tasks by Prof. Maxwell to complete in order to become members of DMI. In doing so, they sometimes convert Kyra’s friend Peter into Shakespeare’s Romeo, a postman into a dog and Maxwell into a guinea pig. Kyra’s faith is tested by Sean (Director of Magic) when he invites her to lunch. As she realises what the purpose of their meeting is, she has an argument with Sean.
Leading a double life makes Kyra distant from her stepfather Steve and her skills of playing basketball all but wither away. Lily and Imogen help Kyra to win a basket ball match with their powers. Later, Kyra realises that an Orb was hidden in the book which gave Kyra the magical powers, and soon realises that the same Orb could be used to take her magic away. In doing so, she will lose her memory of magic as well. As she is attempting to use it, Imogen steals the Orb and hides it in Kyra’s room. Kyra finds out that it was Orla who has been manipulating Darra and Lily in getting the Orb. Kyra loses her magical powers, and Orla’s intentions become clear; she plans on taking over the world and introducing magic to humans. Maxwell and his class learn it’s the Orb which can restore Kyra’s memory of magic and her magical powers. Kyra’s magic and memory return, and it becomes a valuable weapon for her when an unexpected threat materializes. It is a call to the young guardians, humans, fairies and elves alike to come together and unite to save both their worlds.
