# Can “normal” Hermetic Magi take virtues from Realms of Power: Magic?

Page 43 of Realms of Power: Magic starts a list of new Virtues & Flaws for "when designing magic characters or characters that are somehow associated with the realm of Magic". Hermetic magi are usually taken to be associated with the realm of Magic, so are they permitted to take these virtues and flaws?

Some of the virtues and flaws are clearly only appropriate for Magical Companions; but others, particularly the Hermetic ones, seem to be appropriate for any magi.
