The Ley Line Walker is more of a traditional spell casting wizard who is especially attuned to ley line energy. The mage is so attuned to ley lines that he can see magic energy emanating from even weak ley lines normally invisible to the human eye. Likewise, he can see invisible magic energy (P.P.E.) radiating from living beings, enchanted/magic objects, techno-wizard devices, and supernatural creatures. This is not a see aura, but an ability to actually see mystic energy waves. Furthermore, the Ley Line Walker can feel the presence of ley lines, pinpoint nexus areas, and tell when a rift has opened nearby.
The pursuit of magic is a means to utilize natural energy and direct it with one's own mental abilities. The ley line walker spends years learning to focus his thoughts and build his will in order to direct and mold mystic energy. He also spends years learning how to let the ley line energy flow into and through him, building his tolerance for magic energy and making the walker a sort of living relay station and energy transformer, as well as a P.P.E. battery. At these moments, the ley line walker becomes part of the energy he is directing and it gives him much greater control and range of magic abilities.
The inquisitive nature of the line walker means that the character is usually open to new ideas, people, and philosophies. They are often literate, may study areas of science and have no aversion to using high-tech weapons, vehicles, and equipment. Lightweight weapons and armor are generally preferred because they are less cumbersome.

History of the Ley Line Walker OCC.===
(Within Player Party) Ley Line Walkers tend to be the magical support for a balanced party, and while they can get "down and dirty" or fight with technology, a section in Rifts: Book of Magic strongly discourages using this as a primary tactic because it is unoriginal and out-of-character. Mages like to use magic to fight/do things, that's why they are not rogues or fighters.===
