"He's on fire!"
Pyrokinesis is the ability to generate or manipulate fire for purpose of defense or offense. The only being known to have this power is the Hellhound, whose pyrokinesis gives them the ability to generate flames from their body and to be immune to the effects of any kind of fire. A related ability is Thermokinesis, a supernatural power that allows a person to control and generate heat.
Hellhounds naturally possess this power and can generate flames from their body, both as part of their ritual to keep the supernatural world secret and as a defensive or offensive response to battle. Hellhounds can apply this power in several ways: Jordan Parrish (through Cerberus, the Hellhound possessing him) has used his flames to burn the bodies of the failed Chimeras created by the Dread Doctors; to knock Theo Raeken out with a single flaming punch; to set Corey Bryant on fire after he attempted to restrain him; to burn through the Mountain Ash barriers in Eichen House; and to dampen the effects of Lydia Martin's amplified Banshee scream to protect her and everyone around her from dying upon hearing it. In the latter case, it was implied that the Hellhound's fire can be protective if the Hellhound wills it to be so, as it surrounded Lydia without burning her; it is unknown if this would happen to anyone in this situation, or if it was the Hellhound's supernatural connection with Banshees that protected her.
As a result of this power, Parrish (and Hellhounds in general) are immune to fire. This was demonstrated when Parrish was doused in gasoline and set on fire by Deputy Haigh during the Deadpool; though Parrish, who didn't know of his supernatural identity, was terrified by the fact that he was set on fire, it did not actually burn his body, it simply melted and burned his uniform and covered him in soot. Setting Parrish on fire can also summon Cerberus into control of Parrish's body, as evidenced when Scott McCall and Liam Dunbar set him on fire with an improvised flame-thrower in order to have Cerberus lead them to Lydia.
The most offensive use of this ability was displayed when the Hellhound was being controlled by Garrett, The controlled Hellhound created a large burst of flame and directed it at Scott and Liam in a manner of a fireball or even flamethrower.
- Thus far, pyrokinesis has only been a power possessed by the Hellhound.
