It depends on how you define magic, of course. Alternative relations with supposedly immutable laws of physics could describe both Rivers of London-style magic and Presger translator (and presumably Presger) states of being. Environvental manipulation could involve manipulating the elements or manipulating/influencing the AI in control of the local contained environment. I could see Captain Nightengale as having especial influence with her Station AI (perhaps Nightengale has verging-on-ancillary ancillary implants that permit unusually deep access, Station permitting, to Station's data stream and a deeply personal relationship (the kind that takes at least ten years to establish to 'staff' level-intimacy) with Station. Maybe Nightengale apprenticed herself directly to Station as Station's next best thing to having her own ancillaries.
