spell found in many video and computer games around 1990s and the first decade of the 21st century, wherein a lightning bolt strikes one target, then a second with decreased damage, a third, and so on, until its power has diminished beyond a tickle. Example games would be Heroes of Might and Magic 3, World of Warcraft, et al.
1. Solmyr's special ability is that he starts with the ability to cast chain lightning, one of the most powerful spells in Heroes of Might and Magic 3.

2. Elemental Shamans' Chain Lightning and Chain Heal spells are part of the reason why many World of Warcraft players choose them as their characters.

The original Chain Lightning spell dates back to 1st Edition AD&D's Unearthed Arcana by Gary Gygax, and dates back to 1985. It is a sixth level spell, and causes 1d6/level damage per level of the caster to its primary target (or half on a successful save vs. magic). It will branch out to nearby targets in a chain pattern, each subsequent strike doing one less 1d6 per branch, with as many branches as the caster has levels and will continue arcing until it is exhausted. It can be a tricky spell to use because it can hit allies or even the caster himself or herself.
The wizard casts a chain lightning spell, but since there are only a few enemies, one bolt in the chain strikes him instead.
