Fire Magic, also known as pyromancy, is a common elemental Talent.
The aura color typically associated with Fire Magic is red-orange, although mages with other bright shades of red are often trained as Fire Mages as well.
Fire Magic tends to be pretty straightforward. Pyromancers can create bolts, balls, rings, and walls of fire as they desire. Higher skill tends to allow better control, such as avoiding burning allies. Most pyromancers are unharmed by their own fire unless that fire is used to spark a natural blaze.
While some Fire Mages are weak enough to only be capable of lighting a candle, it takes control for a powerful pyromancer to do so without melting the entire candle in a fireball. Mages who are inborn to strong Fire Magic find it very important to learn control of their power as soon as possible, due to the inherent danger in it and the fact that strong emotion can trigger accidental magic unless someone is sufficiently trained.
