Air magic is one of the four main elemental magics, along with Fire, Earth, and Water magic. Masters of air are capable of creating and manipulating air and winds using auric energy to incredible effect. Mastering air magic typically takes lifetimes of study, however those who have are among the most powerful wielders of magic in the Myriad Shadowrealms. In addition to wielding massive destructive power, air magic can be used for the power of flight and to control the weather.
The Witch of Endor trains Sophie Newman in air magic. The magic is immediately useful for fending off Dee's undead army in Ojai - Sophie summons tornadoes to try and blow the skeletal attackers away, though she becomes too tired to control the twisters before the army is destroyed.
Immediately after arriving in Paris, Nicholas, Josh, Sophie, and Scathach are surrounded by the French Police. To escape, Sophie uses air magic to generate a fog when trying to create a distraction police in, allowing their escape. Air magic is again useful when fighting a gargoyle army created by Dee and Machiavelli: Sophie, enhanced by the strength of her brother's aura, combines Air and Fire magic to rapidly heat and cool the stone creatures, shattering them.
