To attain this Iron body, the practitioner must play games that focus on speed and hand-eye coordination. Such games include (but are not limited to): catching birds as they run off, running as fast as possible, and hitting balls with sticks. This Iron body is usually attained by those whose eyes, senses, or “detection” (the bloodline ability of the Arelius family) are faster than their hands. It is said that an individual with this Iron body should “...be able to thread through drops in a rainstorm without getting wet...” (Soulsmith) hence its name. Though this statement has also been said to be found untrue by one of its owners, Eithan Arelius.
