In their studies, a Sorcerer may "crack" the inner working of the Nexus itself. If they chose to explore this curiosity rather than advance their arcane research, they may earn the right to be called a Conduit. Through a greater understanding of the ebb and flow of Nexal energies, a Conduit is able to ride the flow, and direct those following in their wake.
They can rend it apart, forging a way where there was none before. They can bring forth energies from other places, other realms, for others to use in their Arts. Or they can take them back like opening a drain, letting the essence of magic seep from the land.
As the keepers of the veils, they know innately the workings of the physical and its interplay with the mystic. They can work constructs of matter as easily as those of magic, wasting no reagents whether working with base metal or alchemical brew.
In anger, they unleash raw energies on their enemies, hurting and blinding, sapping their strength, making them weak. Their victims, if left alive, are slow and vulnerable to further aggression.
If threatened, they can even shed the base physicality of their flesh to an extent. They can even shunt aside the terrible divine and infernal energies flung so casually by the pawns of the opposing Powers, as the true power of the Transcendent itself may not harm them.
