Latent pyrokinesis? Hidden powers? Cripes.
Listen, if you had something like that, you would’ve figured it out by now. It’s not like you’ve never met a wizard, or have never read a book about how some down-to-earth peasant suddenly discovered their latent mystical abilities. When you were younger you even went through a phase where you really really tried to learn how to use magic.
But it just didn’t happen. Even the wizards didn’t sense any significant amount of Magicka in you. So you looked at everything you had seen in wizards and everything you had seen in yourself and concluded that the difference was beards. The only other explanation you can think of is that there’s just something wrong with you. So beards it is, and you try not to think about the alternative too hard.
Seriously now, you’re quite sure those fires aren’t magic. They’re just… a thing. That’s probably not your fault. Anyone with half a mind could tell that.
You have more pressing matters to deal with at the moment.
SECOND: Gather some rocks, or pieces of debry to throw – this could be vital when it comes to making swift runs for your life: with this you can distract your opponent long enough to disappear… Can… you do that?… o_õ
THIRD: Try to find something you can use as a shield. Those often come in handy, specially in ancient ruins full of traps and critters.
FOURTH: Grab a vine. If you fall in a pit, you can use one to get out.
