In addition, he can manipulate fire that isn’t generated by him. Though this is limited to manipulating the location and area the fire covers. He can’t make it stronger or weaker, nor can he give it new properties.
Feel the burn: Able to cover his entire body in a protective flame that double the distance of his powers. (Fireballs up to 40 feet, and fire beam up to 20 feet) As well as halving the impact of magic used against him
Rise from ash: Able to use ashes to generate objects, such as tools, keys, etc. However, he can only generate these objects for a short time, and each item will dissolve back to ash after a single use. The item created is relative to the amount of ash available.
Fire Resistance: Fire has no effect on his body. However other things, such as clothing, are not covered by this effect.
Brand of the Flame: His powers have left him weak, and he gets injured much easier than a normal person. In addition, he heals from these injuries much slower, often taking weeks to heal from injuries that anyone else could heal in a day.
Diet: Due to his powers giving him an insanely fast metabolism, he needs about 4000 calories a day to maintain body mass.
Born and raised in the desert state of Arizona, fire runs in his blood.
James Lawsen was born into a long line of firefighters dating back to the late 1800s, Both his parents were fire-fighters as well, and it seemed almost a foregone conclusion. Indeed, as a child he showed the bravery that his family was known for, often getting himself into dangerous situations, yet always coming out unscaved. In addition, at about 8 years old he began to develop an interest in fire and pyrotechnics. Not so much how to fight them like his parents, but how they worked. Why fire burns, what allows object to resist fire, and other things along this vein. His parents openly encouraged this exploration, hoping that one day he might become a firefighter one day and join them.
However, that day would never come to pass. Both his parents were killed while trying to fight a wildfire, and he ended up getting placed with his Aunt and Uncle, who didn’t approve of his interests in fire. But, this only interested him more, and led to him experimenting with fire behind his Uncle and Aunts back, and this nearly came back to bite him when he had a firework explode on him, yet it didn’t hurt him. In fact, while it burned his clothes, he only felt a slight tingling feeling, and didn’t seem to suffer any adverse effects.
As time went on, he began to explore his new found powers more and more, soon learning that not only was he immune to fire, he could also create, and manipulate, small flames. At first he could only make flames on the tips of his fingers, though as he learned the extent of his powers, they grew more powerful. He also took an interest in others who had powers like his, eventually he received a letter inviting to some kind of “Academy” for his freshman year of High School, while he had never been a very good student, doing just enough to get by without failing, he believed that the school might help him learn to better use and control his powers.
$500 USD that he had before coming to the island.
Currently lives in student dorms.
