Even though he was a scientist and relied on logic, fact and precision in his work, Illya Kuryakin was also a firm believer in magic. Hed seen it as a child in Kiev when gypsies traveled through town. Hed witnessed it again as a student in Paris when he observed a French gitan hold power over animals that could only be described as supernatural. As an adult, magic was replaced by illusion and deceit until Illya was no longer certain that magic hed witnessed as a youth was ever truly real.
Then he met Napoleon Solo and he believed again.
