Magic and fighting skills

Jones' chosen Adept ability is to fire beams of heat from his eyes. However, he cannot use this power for a long time as it is greatly draining and also leaves him temporarily blinded. Because of this he also wields a sword to compensate for this weakness and to allow him to combat opponents whilst reducing the reliance on his powers. Jones' is a master swordsman and when he was posessed by a Remnant, Tanith Low wondered if he was still more skilled than her in swordsmanship.
