NAME ORIGIN
    Blink is the action of opening and closing the eye, rapidly and repeatedly. The word comes from the Middle English word blinken.
    In the original NES release, this spell's name was changed to RUSE because of the 4 character limit on magic spell names. A ruse is a clever trick or subterfuge. The word comes from the Old French word ruser meaning "to drive back".
