This post is to go over Christian's specific abilities in elemental magics.
AIR: Christian can create a light breeze or a small gust of wind enough to put out a candle.
WATER: Christian can do enough to summon water to fill a glass, or create a light spritz of moisture. If you broke a glass of water, he could use his magic to redirect the mess to the sink.
EARTH: He can throw small rocks or make small plants grow a bit faster. He can also cause minor wood rot.
Christian specialized in fire, just as his aunt and father did. Even Lissa's mother Rhea, whose mother was an Ozera, specialized in fire magic.
The abilities of a specialized user in an element far surpass those of a non-specialized user. The specializations are not chosen by the user, but rather a natural affinity that seems to be hereditary.
Fire is probably the best element for fighting against Strigoi. Since the Strigoi especially hate fire for its destructive merit, a well-aimed hit would have them distracted long enough for a guardian to stake them in the heart.
Christian was already showing his capability in fire when he was a child, so he's quite powerful as a fire user. His abilities as a fire user have come through extensive training with his aunt Natasha, and include:
He's capable of cloaking another in flames without singing their clothes or skin, even if they're moving around. He's also capable of incineration, and creating fire walls (for self-defense) or fireballs (for aggressive attacks).
Christian's attacks can be small and pinpointed with concentrated heat, or large and explosive fireballs. However, Christian has never created a full-on "fire storm".
He could kill somebody just by overheating them - forcing them into an instantaneous heat stroke or 'cooking' their internal organs, forcing them to give in and shut down.
He also has the capability to warm entire rooms by a few degrees.
Super-heating objects is capable of causing serious burns to someone's skin, but this can also be used for cauterization to stop the bleeding on a serious wound.
On the other end of the spectrum, he can also sap the heat right out of something, until it freezes.
However, he would not be able to manipulate snow or ice, seeing as those are both made of water. He could work together with a water user to create an inescapable "cast" of ice, though.
