Now You See Me

The group of magicians is led by the ghost of a magician who had tragically passed away. The magician had lost his fame and his life in an attempt to perform dangerous magic.
These 4 Horsemen are puppets in the massive scheme where they take revenge on the ones who wronged the magician. The symbol of the eye leads the group into fame and success. The symbol of the eye is famed to be the insignia of master magicians which any magician would be humbled to be invited to.
