Maybe an eastern elemental split is better...earth, wood, metal, fire, water. We still get the relatively balanced fire and water. We now get wood (the essence of life and vitality) opposing metal (which can embody machines and sometimes unnatural things). They each centre around earth, like the floating rock platforms on which the people of this setting live. Air is not represented in this cosmology because it is an intrinsic part of everything...specific abilities become focused on those outside elements, while the actual power level of the individual is determined by the central element (the earth).
