The elevator magician is a rare phenomenon which usually appears when you're stuck in a lift with about fifty other people and some numbnut decides to push every single button on the control panel, whilst everyone else - including you - wants to go to the ninety-ninth floor. If you look very closely at the space between the crowds she will appear from nothingness, claiming she needed to access the ninety-ninth floor also, which is rather silly considering she could have just teleported there in the first place. It shouldn't come as a surprise that everyone was living on the ninety-ninth floor because there are only thirty people in your entire township and ninety-seven of those ninety-nine floors are probably abandoned.
She will then approach the control panel and cite a magical incantation in order to get there, even if her actual lack of magic prowess is the elephant in the room - literally. The elephant is so huge it almost asphyxiates the crowd as its sheer mass pushes them against the elevator walls. Quickly, she needs to devise a plan of attack, defence, and goal-scoring. Managing to shrink the elephant down to the size of a grapefruit, she looks up another incantation in her book of things-she-made-up-in-just-that-instant. The button for the ninety-ninth floor lights up promisingly, and the elevator continues its constant drive upwards.
Until suddenly, from within the elevator, Evel Knievel notices the sounds of rocketfire.
