Searing Gale as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Searing Gale (熱破旋風陣 Neppa Senpuujin?, "Heat Destroy Whirlwind Field"[1] / "Heat Blast Whirlwind Array"), also localized as Flame Vortex, is a Fire-elemental arte used by Swordsmen in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When the arte is used, the user jumps while spinning, making flames follow them. Afterward, the user raises their sword before slamming it to the ground. Upon contact, fire sprouts from the area affected by the sword's touch. In Tales of the Abyss, Guy Cecil's Severing Wind will change to Searing Gale while being used in a fully-charged Fire or Light FOF Circle. In Tales of Graces, Richard performs a similar attack when fought as an enemy.
