Pluck the dog from his mundane existence.

In arcana, unbinding is a ritual that can only be performed by very strong practicioners of magic, and is rare even then. Unbinding effectively removes the mental 'block' that prevents regular mortals from accessing the power of the Astral Plane. As it is such a rare skill, it is difficult to say whether the regular mortals are already special before, or if any person can be unbound. Either way, it is known that most persons cannot be successfully unbound. If the ritual fails, the vast majority remain Mundane for the duration of their lives, though death is more than likely.
