This article is about Alchemical Fyre. You might be looking for the novel Fyre.


Fyre, or more formally Alchemical Fyre, is a special type of fire that can only be created by Alchemists. This special, Magykal fire differs from normal fire in a number of ways. It is a beautiful living substance that requires water, but can be suppressed by special cannel coal. It has the power to transmute lead into gold and can be used to heat the Castle. However, the Great Alchemie Disaster had the Chamber of Fyre and Alchemical Fyre shut down by former ExtraOrdinary Wizard Julius Pike, and the tunnels that were used to spread heat and water through the castle were frozen, later called the Ice Tunnels. In the book Fyre, it is revealed that Julius Pike is the one who had caused the Great Alchemie Disaster. The Ice Tunnels melted not long after the Fyre was reopened, and the tunnels went back to how they were supposed to be about 500 years before. Marcellus Pye was the only known individual who fully knew the secrets of how to make the Fyre, though he later taught some of the details to his Alchemie Apprentices Septimus Heap and Simon Heap.[1]
