Pyrokinesis was created by Brad Kern for the hit tv-series Charmed. However, all traits in Blessed belong to Matt.

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 things on fire when experiencing strong emotions, such as fear or anger.


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.

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.

Pyrokinesis can be amplified through the use of a potion or through the power of ProjectionPeri 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.

Optical Fire Bolts

Main article: Optical Fire Bolts

Optical Fire Bolts is the rare power to shoot fire bolts from both eyes. When Christy Jenkins once 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.
