The following article/section is from the Gifted Clans continuity under Rick Riordan Presents and not the Riordanverse canon.

The Gifted Community are a community of Korean witches of five, formerly six, clans that are each descended of a goddess. Each clan has an elected elder that, along with the other elders, form a council that governs the community. The council is usually headed by the elder of the Samjogo Clan.


Each of the clans are gifted with the ability to practice an ability distinct to their clan and are affiliated to four of the five elements, water, metal, wood, earth, and fire, with the absent element being used to create a Gi Bracelet, a bracelet that allows them to practice magic.
