    according to this link magic is included in the first's powers. Evinlea is a member of the first. I never read it myself so I can't say if from personal experience.

As I said, they may wield a bit of magic, but they are not magical in nature. IIRC, only in Mystic's book do we get implications of them having mystical capabilities. But it's been a while since I read them books, so I won't argue further.

    I'm not saying he is immune to magic because he has a sigil. He feel that in his draining of Evinlea he can drain magic. He is shown absorbing energy blast without making any effort. I don't see why magic would work differently. So he isn't really immune he just happens to absorb the energy (magical) that is directed at him. Now if someone summoned a big non-magical anvil above his head. Gravity would have ko'ed javi if his powers were not amped up.

Yes, you may be right. But one point made explicitly clear in the books is that the Sigils could drain the First so easily because they all shared/originated from the same power well. And that could be said about Atlanteans as well. So, what I wanna say is that, while Sigil-Bearers can potentially do anything, not everything comes naturally at first and Javi didn't really face any true mystical threat before.
