Not only is the Traveling Flame visually impressive, it also has some smarty-pants science going for it. The short story goes like this: If you have two candles and blow one out, you can immediately reignite ol' extinguished with the lit candle from a distance.
Once you're done acting like Party Guest of the Spirits, you can spill the science all over the enthralled group of onlookers, the one that most certainly surrounds you because you are a fire master.
That science? The smoke from the extinguished candle includes vaporized candle wax. If you move quickly, this can be used as fuel, sending the flame zipping back through the smoke to the wick and relighting the candle without touching it.
