Arte Description and History
Grand Finale is a technique exclusive to Rowen, activated after using the arcane arte Tidal Wave. This attack creates several columns of water that rise up from the wave created by the preceding spell. The water and columns are subsequently frozen, encasing the target in an icy structure. Rowen walks away from the pillars, then, with his back still turned to the enemy, raises his hand and throws a hidden knife toward the center of the ice columns. All of the ice shatters, dealing heavy damage to any opponents caught within.
