You're tying yourself up in semantics. Don't get carried away looking at the definition of a "spell". Stu meant the exact same thing Jack did, even if he technically used the wrong term. Some races, like vampyres or demons, use magic naturally. Others, like humans, need a conduit. Vampyres and Demons are magical creatures, humans are not, but can learn to use it. It's not any more complicated than that. -
I have noticed your kind does tend to blindly stumble forward towards danger simply because it exists. What is your word for that?
- We call it being a hero.

The way I see it, there's been no retcon, or at least not a major one. Like you said, humans are naturally able to do magic and can even become skilled enough to perform it wihout runes. However, unlike demons we don't come out of the womb (well, demons aren't born that way, but that's besides the point) with the ability to just cast spells out of nowhere. We have to be taught how to manipulate the wind or shoot fire from our hands. To a demon, or any of the other races with "inherent spellcasting", magic is like breathing. To a human, magic is more like trying to learn a martial art.

Original message details are unavailable.
It would take the best of them a full year to master the fundamental principles of blood magic.

For me, it was as breathing.

Going by Heart of Stone, (mortal) magic is harnessing the power of the anima mundi. It's something anyone can do in theory, but some races are more capable than others. I suspect it has something do with coming from the lower planes and the anima mundi being more "raw" there. Humans come from a higher plane, which makes it harder to harness this power, hence why most of us require runes to channel it.
