balefire

Balefire is the very essence of Fae magic and a fundamental element of the Nevernever. Similar to Hellfire and Soulfire it is the Purifying and Subtle Transformative Power of Fire. Perceived as translucent energy the color of the sunlight, it may be directed at either a single target as a lightning-like bolt or as a scintillating globe affecting an Area. The energy is absorbed by the target which is then transformed on a basic level.

One use of Balefire used in conflice causes Flesh-masks, ecto-suits and glamours to stripped away as though by the touch of the rising sun. Whatever the energy hits absorbs the energy and is then…Unraveled. The spell doesn’t actually destroy anything, just takes things apart at the connecting bits. Stitches unstitced, thread unwoven, bolts pop out, etc.
Type:
Fire Evocation, Offensive Attack
Power:
Varies on Caster. 6 for this example
Control:
Discipline plus appropriate specializations and focus items
Target:
One target for this version. can be made into a zone-wide attack if shifts of strength are sacrificed
Opposed by:
Athletics for Single target, Endurance for zone-wide since it would hit everything in the zone.
Effect:
Strength 6 attack Unravels the Target. It doesn’t destroy the component pieces, so objects hit by the attack become scene aspects like A Pile of Gun Parts. Consequences for this Spell would include Very Naked and Falling Apart at The Seams.

Another use of Balefire is to illuminate your target, so that they are easier to see within their environment. This is often referred to as Faerie Fire
