The fire startled Elsie but her training kicked in and she immediately cast Aqua Eructo in a wide circle around herself first, then directly at any flame she could within range. It was chaos, the unicorns had descended in to full blown panic and there was no immediate way to calm them or even gather them and lead them to safety.

Elsie's eyes darted around the clearing, trying desperately to catch sight of the source of the flames. They didn't seem to be coming from anywhere in particular though, which puzzled her because dragon flame usually came from one clear direction. Not to mention the fact that it was almost impossible for a dragon to have snuck in amongst their midst.

Although she had cleared her immediate vicinity of flames, she had been stood right in the centre of the clearing to better manage the herd and the smoke was beginning to become unbearable. A hasty Bubble-Head charm took care of her breathing but her vision was severely hindered. Not only was the smoke becoming too dense to see through, but her eyes were stinging and beginning to water. She had lost sight of all the unicorns now and had no choice but to trust that those on the outskirts of the clearing were managing to keep them somewhat safe. Her sole focus now was figuring out where all these flames had come from.

She thought she caught sight of a shadow through the smoke, but it didn't make sense. It looked like nothing she had ever seen before and whatever it was would be far too small to create flames on this magnitude, so she quickly cast Ventus and shot a blast of wind from her wand to clear the air. There was nothing there, so she concluded that she was simply seeing shapes in the smoke and decided to concentrate the rest of her efforts to clearing any remaining flames and smoke so the team could regroup.

Jamie, for all her studying, had always been more of a book person. Did she know the charm to produce water? Indeed, she could write page on page on the technique and the origins of it. When being faced head-on with fire though, her reaction was a bit of a different story. Seeing the flames jumping towards her, she behaved as any of the unicorns did, jumping back in alarm. Her duties were mostly in regards to pulling memories; certainly, this exceeded her job description. Hearing the water swish in the air and rain down on the clearing, the obliviator finally came to her senses, casting Aguamenti and dousing the small fires that hadn’t yet been put out.

Glancing around, everything was madness. Smoke filled the clearing choking her team members and sending the area into a dense cloud. She could hardly tell one unicorn from the next as they darted in all directions, coalescing in wild snorts of panic and pounding hooves. A rush of air shot in one direction, clearing some smoke in a seemingly arbitrary spot. Why on earth would they clear part of the area and not all of it? She had not seen anything suspicious, so far to the other side of the clearing as she was. Shaking her head in confusion, she too cast Ventus, pushing as much smoke as she could out of the confined area of the clearing. It swirled back like a wave of grey, angrily fighting against the wind, yet falling to its force.

Having dissipated some of it, she then moved to help the unicorns. It simply wouldn’t do to have them running away—goodness knows what would happen to them. Muttering a quick apology to each, she used Immobulus on the more panicked of the bunch, quickly stepping over and uttering calming words. Once she saw some of the fear dissipate in their eyes, she’d quickly cast the counter-charm and move to the next. Jamie was only one person, and she hardly had the expertise of figuring out where the strange fire had come from, but she knew how to soothe people. She would just have to hope that that skill would transfer to animals as well.
