El Diablo is a gangster processing pyrokinesis (the ability to influence fire with power of his mind). Preferring to stay out of brawls, he is different from the rest of the squad who are eager to kill.
Learn El Diablo’s ways of manipulating fire at his will in a cooking class with French Chef Marthe. If the fundamental lesson is too basic, take part in an intense heat cook off BBQ in the middle of the desert. If you have pyrophobia (the fear of fire) but relish in the heat, consider going for a 2 Day Taitung Chihpen hot springs tour or have a hella good time at Dragon Hill spa in Korea.
