Being only half-Venatori fighting has always been uneven – almost unfair – until I realized that I could use my ability to bend the elements as a helping hand. Some say it gives me an unfair advantage. My response is – you are faster, stronger and more agile than me. If you can stop doing all those things, I’ll stop using my universe given gift to bend the elements.
It’s not completely unfathomable that bending elements could be used as a weapon, but the Venatori don’t train you in combat magic. It was something I picked up on my own. It’s hard to teach combat magic when not everyone can do the same thing to the same ability.
My father can bend fire and earth. Technically he could throw a fireball at his opponent – but with out air as a mechanism as well it’s difficult to get the speed to actually throw it with any force. He could form the fire around his opponent though. My fighting technique is more the first with very little around the later. But then again 80% of what I did in school was purely defensive so I wouldn’t get the shit kicked out of me when they threw a hard punch that could have killed me because I couldn’t get out of the way fast enough. A few kids broke their hands punching one of my air walls – sucks to be them – but it would have hurt me far worse.
