The Second Generation (第二世代, Dainisedai) are people who have adapted to Spontaneous Human Combustion, and instead of becoming an Infernal, they awakened the ability to manipulate and control existing flames.

As with the Third Generation, they sport higher physical capabilities as well as being more resilient to damage, along with natural immunity to flames. Because of their unique abilities, Second Generations usually become Fire Soldiers in the Special Fire Force.

However, unlike Third Generation pyrokinetics, they cannot generate their own flames.

Overview

Second Generation pyrokinetics possess the ability to manipulate preexisting flames,[1] whether it's ordinary fire or fire produced by First and Third Generation pyrokinetics. Some members of the Second Generation are powerful enough to manipulate flames on a large scale and from far away.

Like the Ignition Abilities used by members of the Third Generation, it seems all Second Gens use their abilities in their own unique way. This included amplifying flames for greater attack power, redirecting flames so as to avoid injury and/or property damage, and extinguishing flames entirely. The unique abilities they use are known to somewhat depict their personalities.

Second Generations are known to be more skilled in the manipulation of flames compared to Third Generation pyrokinetics.[2] Examples of this include Karim being able to remove heat from his surroundings to create ice, and Charon being able to convert kinetic energy into thermal energy. Maki is even able to grant fire sentience.

Their ability to control outside fire gives them an advantage in battles against other flame users. Second Generations such as Maki Oze have been noted to be an effective defence or counter-attack. When fighting against a Third Generation, it's ideal to hide the fact that they're a Second Generation, in order to trick their opponent into using their flames.[3]

List of Second Generation abilities

 
Ability User Description
Maki's Second Gen Ability.png
Maki Oze
Maki's ability allows her to turn flames into sentient beings, which she dubbed "Sputter" and "Flare". Her fireballs can be altered in size and shape or be merged into a single creature. Through such an ability, she can redirect fire attacks. Maki has also shown the ability to extinguish a large volume of flames in a single area, or redirect them to a different target.
Takehisa's Ability.png
Takehisa Hinawa
Takehisa uses his ability through a pistol, which he has dubbed "Velocity Control", that allows him to adjust the speed of his bullets. The bullets he launches can be made non-lethal. Takehisa can use the sparks, created by the bullets, to change the trajectory of his attacks. He can also ricochet his bullets, increasing their velocity and penetration force.
Karim's Second Gen Ability.png
Karim Flam
Karim's ability dubbed "Thermoacoustic Refrigeration", allows him to generate ice. Through his musical instrument, he collects heat energy inside, then transforms the heat into sound, thus decreasing its temperature, and by repeating the loop several times, creates ice, which can be launched at opponents or be used to incapacitate Flame Humans. In simplistic terms, Karim has compared his ability to how air conditioning functions.[4]
Benimaru's Second Gen Ability.png
Benimaru Shinmon
Benimaru's ability allows him to control flames ignited from himself and others with great proficiency. He can erect a 4 meter barrier around himself that doesn't allow heat to bypass.
Giovanni's Second Gen Ability.png
Giovanni
Giovanni can use his mechanical hands as projectiles. He can launch them, extended by a long wire that can be heated and even burn through tree branches, and retract them. By using explosions to launch them, he can control the direction they go in. Giovanni has different type of projectiles. He's displayed using his regular hand as a weapon, a sort of grip-claw that can dig into objects, and electrical wires that can be used to electrify his opponents.
Charon's Second Gen Ability.png
Charon
Charon can use his Second Generation ability to absorb and accumulate kinetic energy into his body from any attack, and transform it into thermal energy to attack with. Upon releasing it, the usage gives him the appearances of being a Third Generation.
Hajiki's Ability.png
Amon Hajiki
Amon had eyes that allowed him to see thermal signals in his vicinity and even behind walls and clothing
