The userspews a stream of gun-powder from their mouth, which surrounds the region. As the gunpowder is composed entirely of ash, it stays in the air around the victim like a cloud, which can be used like a smokescreen. The Ash can also be further manipulated to spread out if target tries to escape. After surrounding the enemy with the ash, the user then throws metal spikes at the enemy. If the spikes hit vital points, the enemy of course dies. If the spikes are parried or blocked with something metallic (like a sword), then a resulting spark will ignite the dust, resulting in a violent explosion, burning the enemy. However, this technique requires keen senses to read the air currents, the insight to read the movements of the enemy, the tactical experience to not also enfold one's allies in the flames, and careful attention for the timing of the ignition.
