A form of ritual suicide that can be performed by Elves. It is one that instills both fear and awe in other Elves, for it involves a request of Faerie itself that the Elf's magickal essence be withdrawn. An Elf without magick, needless to say, dies.
It is detectable on a body by the complete absence of magick, even the ambient background magick that forms a part of Faerie.
One of the villains in "The Coin of the Realm" is found to have performed a Removal Request in advance of his likely capture by the Blood Seal Bearers.
