Iovis Tempestas Fulguriens (Jupiter's Fulgurating Storm) is an attack spell which combines the elements of wind and lightning into a directed storm teeming with lightning.
Veniant spiritus aerialis fulgurientes!
Cum fulguriationis flet tempestas austrina…
Iovis Tempestas Fulguriens!
Come, spirits of air and lightning!
Let the Southern Storm Blow With Lightning.
Jupiter's Lightning Storm!
Kitare raisei, kaze no sei. Ikazuchi wo madoite fukisabe
nanyou no kaze....
Ikazuchi no boufuu
Iuppiter (Jupiter, vocative form Iove, genitive form Iovis) Capitolinus was the Roman god of weather, lightning and storms, and presided over the Roman pantheon. The fact that the spell invokes the southern Wind reflects the pre-Greece-Conquest habit of Roman augurs and priests to face south while praying, having the rising sun thus to their left (thus considered fortunate); also, in Italy, southern winds are bringers of lightning tempests with heavy rain.
