OriginsEdit

The Canterbury region of New Zealand rests on a large fault line, resulting in the area being a hotspot for seismic activity. Since it's construction in 1881, many earthquakes have ravaged the Chistchurch City Cathedral and surrounding area. In 1888, the spire suffered massive damage, requiring it's replacement. In 2011, another quake destroyed much of the city, causing the spire to fall once again. As of 2014, the Cathedral has still not been repaired.

EffectsEdit

When in the presence of seismic activity, the Spire draws as much energy towards itself as possible, confining the damage to smaller radius. The downside being that the concentrated force causes catastrophic destruction to the area around the spire.
