Ardescat (Ignite) is a simple but important training spell that creates a small flame, serving to unlock access to the pupil's magic. Its status as the first spell to be learnt in western magic reflects that civilisation is largely attributed to man's mastery of fire. While Negi notes that using a lighter works just as well as this spell, it should be noted that this flame which is fuelled by mana burns even underwater and in a vacuum.
