Akina derived her vast magical powers from a jewel given to her by her father. She got into an altercation with Tabu in order to prove that her magic was superior than his. Using a magically created leopard, she was able to transport Tabu to her palace, where she magically transformed him into a drum to be used in her tribe's festivals. However, when Tabu managed to break her spell, she feigned to have accepted defeat, and let him go. However, using his image captured in her magical jewel, she was then able to afflict her magic upon him at a distance, by surrounding him in a magical ring of fire.
