Peter came from a family of diviners. He saw her for the first time at a formal dinner and recognized her as the one whose portrait rested along the so-called Lycurgus Cup in his attic. He knew that she was the spirit that would lead him to his true destiny.

Peter courted her; and they were soon married.  Within a short time he was advising world leaders.

Unfortunately his in-laws were unhappy as they felt that their daughter had lost her spirit post-marriage. However, her portrait glowed with life and the cup glittered with her incandescence in the attic.

The exercise of true magic does not require any ceremonies or conjurations, or the making of circles or signs; it requires neither benedictions nor maledictions in words, neither verbal blessings nor curses; it only requires a strong faith in the omnipotent power of all good, that can accomplish everything if it acts through a human mind being in harmony with it, and without which nothing useful can be accomplished. ~ Philippus Theophrastus Bombast of Hohenheim aka Paracelsus
