Levitating is a skill taught in Exillium which, with applied concentration, can levitate one high off of the ground. Sophie and her friends learned the skill while attending Exillium in Book 4: Neverseen. In Nightfall, Keefe, Linh, and Sophie use this skill to levitate to the top of the dome in Atlantis. Fitz used it in Flashback to drop Sophie so that she can teleport when needed. Tam and Timkin Heks are said to have very good levitating skills, because they attended Exillium.
