The Arts is the ability system in the When the Fires Broke Through Universe. The Arts are split into four elements: the Nature, the Beast, the Arcs, and the Darkness. Each element is split again into properties. Allure is the energy or stamina that surrounds a person. Everyone has allure, but not everyone can refine their allure into an Art. A person can master a property, but many in Mystos don't because they cannot practice the Arts outside of Lismure. Each continent in the WTFBT universe represents each element of the Arts.
