One of the power sets Gisele has is fire-based, and the idea is that the fire tradition has sort of an angelic look to them. My wife asked me why if the fire nation is angelic, based on the seraphs, why does Gisele not use flaming wings to jump in the air instead of the pirouette I’ve had Gisele do all this time. And I thought it as a good question, and then some of my dev friends implored me to make wings when I brought it up with them. So here we are. Gisele has wings now. (have I said wings enough?)

In the grimoire the fire tradition looks like this

It’s been fun trying to design this ancient culture that makes sense on some level, and also build useful game mechanics at the same time. And by “fun” I mean I’m about ready to pull my hair out ♥
