Norma (ノーマ Nōma?) is the name given to those who are born without the ability to use Light of Mana. Like the Ancient Humans, they cannot use Mana and will destroy anything made out of Mana just by making physical contact with it. Unlike Ancient Humans, Norma can be born of parents that can use Mana and are an example of a genetic throwback to the time where all humans couldn't use mana. It is revealed that the creation of Norma is the will of human genes that against Embryo. Only females can be Norma, the reason is currently unknown,though Ange theorized that so Norma can bore children who can't use Mana in order to reject Embryo and his world.
Considered to be "Human degenerates," as they labelled "instinctively violent and antisocial monsters," Norma are able to break through the "Light of Mana", and because of this they are feared as a dangerous presence that could destroy the social system. Norma seem to only be females for some reason, yet the reason why hasn't been elucidated at all. Due in part because they can't accept Mana, they have to be constrained in childhood and isolated from society as soon as they are discovered. Day-to-day quarantine officers have cracked down on finding individuals who are Norma.
