Inception is the testing and induction ceremony which creates Rithmatists.
Inception is a religious ceremony of the Church of the Monarch and takes place in a Monarchical chapel. On the Fourth of July every year, all the 8-year-olds in the fifty isles are "incepted". Holy water is sprinkled on their heads, and they are blessed and told to enter the chamber of inception. A Shadowblaze is bound to a small and seemingly random portion of the children that go through the Room of Inception, making them Rithmatists. Joel Saxon is one of the very few to have been incepted well after his inception age, as his previous inception was done incorrectly.
