Pyrokinesis the ability to control and produce fire with the mind. Witches commonly use this power to light candles and can also use liquids (e.g. alcohol, water, etc.) as an accelerant. This power can also be activated through a spell.
List of UsersEdit
Bonnie Bennett Edit
This is probably the most used witch power by Bonnie as it is also the most harmful to others who are trying to hurt her or the people she cares about. She first discovered this power in Family Ties and has used it many a time since. She very often uses water as an accelerant; in Fool Me Once she needed to throw a glass of water on Ben McKittrick to ignite him. She has used this power to light candles often as this assists in her witchcraft and spells; witches can use fire and other natural elements to power their magic. She has also notably used it in You're Undead to Me unknowingly, after Tiki was rude to a client;she went into a trance and the stream of water leading to car starting to steam and then burst into flames, ultimately burning up the car. She also used it in Brave New World to attempt to set Damon Salvatore on fire. She turned the tap of the hose on, incapacitated him by giving him one aneurysm after another, led the stream of water near him and lit it on, attempting to burn him alive. Bonnie activates this power similarly to her Pain Infliction: she gives a strong stare at the object that she intends to ignite.
Greta Martin Edit
During her short time on the show, Greta used this power the most out of all of her witchcraft abilities. She notably used it to light fires so that Elena and herself could see the site of the sacrifice at the end of The Last Day. She also used this power to create three large rings of fire which she would later hex so that the flames would rise in intensity if the trapped one got near to them. They were also spelled so that those within the rings, Jules, Jenna and Elena, would be unable to leave the circles to escape or help each other. Greta activated this power with a simple gesture of the hand- she splayed her fingers and raised her hand up, about an inch.
Jonas Martin Edit
Jonas once used this ability in The House Guest. He pushed all the drinks on the bar, in the Mystic Grill, so that they smashed into each other and used the alcohol left behind as an accelerant before setting it alight. He activated this power by giving a strong, stern gaze at the bar which then immediately set on fire. It is also possible he caused more fires afterwards because after Caroline came in, there were quite a few more small fires lit than there was earlier.
- Fear: As with all witch powers, if a witch if deeply afraid of something their powers will be weaker, and until they conquer their fear, their powers will remain blocked.
- Awakening: If the user goes into a trance, breaking them from it will usually lower the intensity of the flames and will definitely stop the caster from igniting more.
- Extinguishing: The flames will, normally, stop when they are extinguished. This could be covering the flames or using water if it isn't used as an accelerant.
- Spells: The spell 'Altering the Intensity of The Flames' will possibly be able to extinguish the fire before the witch has even finished burning something.
- Overuse of Magic: If witch uses much power, it can kill her, but for now only nose bleeds are seen though Sheila Bennett died from exhaustion.
