Pyrokinesis is the ability to create and manipulate fire at will. It can be channeled through the mind or hands. This is one of the most common elemental powers, possessed by Firestarters and several demons. Witches and Warlocks can also possess this power, but it is not as common.

Initially this power may be difficult to control. Firestarters can accidentally set thing on fire when experiencing strong emotions, such as fear or anger.

DescriptionEdit

Pyrokinesis can be used for various effects. Most commonly, it is used to cause objects or beings to spontaneously ignite in flames. However, powerful and experienced users can instantly incinerate targets by concentrating on them in their mind rather than by staring at them.

It can also be used defensively to destroy incoming powers or potions. For instance, Christy Jenkins once used her pyrokinetic abilities to blow up a bottle of potion in mid-air by heating the potion up from the inside with her mind.[1]

Users can throw a stream of fire from the hands or focus to create a large sphere of fire that can be directed at targets. Christy, for example, could focus her pyrokinetic abilities to form these spheres, however, it took a lot of concentration. These spheres are also extremely lethal, seeing as Billie Jenkins was able to kill Christy, a powerful witch in her own right, by redirecting her sphere of fire back at her.[2]

Pyrokinesis can be amplified through the use of a potion or though the power of Projection. P. Russell, for example, once tripled the strength of her pyrokinetic power through the use of a potion made by the warlock Anton. The potion made her stronger and enabled her to throw fire.[3]

Billie once amplified Christy's pyrokinetic ability to a point where she was able to vanquish, Pator, a demon thought impossible to be vanquished.[4] Billie and Christy once again used amplified pyrokinesis to battle the Charmed Ones.[5]

Power Developed from PyrokinesisEdit

Optical Fire BoltsEdit

Main article: Optical Fire Bolts

Optical Fire Bolts is the rare power to shoot fire bolts from both eyes. When Christy took in the Hollow it advanced her pyrokinetic abilities to a point where she was able to shoot fire from her eyes without getting hurt. This indicates that the power of Pyrokinesis may evolve into Optical Fire Bolts.
