List consequences taken here along with valueStuntsPowersSponsored Magic(Aeolean Magic)
[-4]: Aeolean Magic draws upon the power of Court of Winds, allowing you to cast spells that fall under its purview: deception, discovery, release, travel, weather.
Aeolean Magic can be used as an element for evocation, allowing evocation spell effects within it's purview. This includes the ability to produce weather effects, but with an evocation spell's methods and speed.
Aeolean evocations always includes the weather in some way, raising fog to obscure, creating images in mists, calling lightning to strike or whirlwinds to rend. Aeolean compels tends to make the user's temper more closely adhere to the weather.
Phil draws upon this power through his bloodline and his bindings to his 'aunts'.
Aeolean Magic grants four focus item slots.
Conductor's Baton Wand - +3 to Offensive Air Control
Enchanted Item x2 - Whirlwind Barrier Amulet(Block 4), Bag of Winds(Manuever, Violent Winds(Scene) 2 exchange)Human Form
[+1] : Phil takes on a clear fae aspect when tapping into his heritage, sprouting wings and taking on a lean, almost feral aspect. His eyes and hair turn a pale shade of blue in his true form.
[-1] : You can fly, eliminating or reducing certain kinds of borders and enabling travel upwards into zones that can't normally be reached.
Winged flight is governed by the Athletics skill.
Phil's wings are insectile, sleek and swept back, but colored in a variety of pastel shades.
[-2] : Your Alertness is at +4 for the purpose of determining initiative.
All Athletics checks are made at +1, including dodging. When sprinting this bonus is increased to +2.
When moving as part of another physical activity, you may move one zone without taking the -1 penalty for a supplemental action.
Difficulty factors due to moving are reduced by 2 when rolling Stealth.Catch(cold iron)
[+3(technically +4)] : Much like his fey parentage, touching cold iron causes discomfort, while actually being wounded by iron bypasses his faerie durability.
[-2] : You're able to recover from physical harm that would normally leave people permanently damaged. You can recover totally from any consequence, including extreme ones, with nothing needed but time.
Out of combat, physical consequences are treated as if they are one level lower in severity for the purpose of recovery.
Endurance never restricts other skills from lack of rest. Skipping a night of sleep has no ill effects.
In combat, once per scene, you may clear away a mild physical consequenvce as a supplemental action.
[-2] : You naturally have Armor: 1 and two additional boxes of physical stress capacity.Rotes

Target One zone
Duration Three exchanges
Opposed by Target’s Athletics skill, or Might skill in the first round(once picked off the ground, Might cannot be applied without some form of leverage like wings or rope)
Effect A small tornado seizes everyone in the area, trapping them in the wind while it lasts. The first round establishes the grapple. Each round thereafter, the targets roll Athletics to grab hold of something and break free. If the roll fails to beat the spell's effect(Good + 3), the targets are inflicted with the aspect Everything is Spinning.
