 Magic and Abilities
Gray is capable of using a branch of Creation magic which allows him to create objects out of ice called Ice Creation magic. This magic was taught to him by his mentor, Ur and according to her, Ice Creation magic allows wizards to create objects with greater speed compared with other branches of Creation magic.
As opposed to his senior disciple, Lyon Bastia, Gray performs Creation magic with two hands which creates more stable creations, and he typically creates "Static" creations in the form of objects, while Lyon makes "Dynamic" creations in the forms of animals which can move.
Gray is also able to use a spell called Iced Shell which freezes its target in everlasting ice created from the caster's body. The ice created from this spell can only be melted through the use of the spell, Moon Drip.
