For quiet sometime now I’ve been stuck on one of the finer details of my world building. Namely that one of my characters is this world’s version of a pyromancer that, through the use of both the weak and strong force, as well as the electromagnetic force though to a lesser extent, create flames from the atmosphere.
The issue is I’m neither a chemist or a nuclear scientist, so I’d do not know what reaction, or reactions, my character can utilize.
As stated before hand, my character utilized both the weak and strong force respectively. Though his control and understanding of the electromagnetism is not as complete as the nuclear options. And when I mean ‘control’, I mean that my character can respectfully, control the rate of nuclear fission and decay, even force stable molecules and atoms apart; weaken and strengthen the strong force to induce both hot and cold fusion, though I’m still wondering if hot fusion is part of the weak force; and change EM fields and ions at a atomic level.
And finally, the flames themselves have to be
a) Look like fire or at least have a reaction that generates enough heat to have flames coming of of it.
b) Powerful and hot enough to damage a given target.
c) The reaction is preferably self sustaining, or at least as self sustaining a fire cast magically from a person be.
Lastly, the flames I’m imagining are less like lobbing fire balls and more akin to fire alchemy that is seen in Full Metal Alchemist Brotherhood.
Multiple possible reactions are also preferred, thank you.
