IC Events


  • Empathy: Manuel is a mutant with the ability to sense and manipulate the emotional state of others around him. He can sense emotions within about 100 yards, regardless of whether or not he can physically see his target, and is not limited to sensing the emotions of a single person at a time; the emotions of anyone in his radius can be felt, though it takes some modest concentration to pinpoint the exact source. The closer a target is to Manuel, the more accurately he can read the emotional source and its direction; ie: if someone is angry, he can tell if the target is angry at a specific person, or a situation, though details may be vague as the target is willing to share (OOC consent). His empathic power makes him a natural and very accurate lie detector. Manuel is also able to use this ability as a kind of radar to get a read on how many people are around him and their general direction and distance. It's not super accurate, but effective nonetheless.
  • Empathic Manipulation: Manuel's empathic abilities allow him to directly influence and control a person's emotional state, provided they are in range for him to sense them. He is able to amp up or scale down emotions, making someone angry or calm, happy or sad, simply amplify their emotional reactions, or numb them completely. Under the effects of Manuel's powers, a target may become more susceptible to his suggestion and persuasion; he may amplify a target's rage, and suggest that a specific person is the cause of their anger, for example. While he cannot cause one person to fall in love with another, he is able to induce an infatuation, though the exact target may not be who he intends. How well a person resists these suggestions depends on their own strength of will, and is of course fully at the discretion of the Player affected. Manuel is able to affect not only individual targets, but wide areas; roughly half his effective sense range. He is able to sway the emotional state of large groups distinctly toward a certain strong overriding emotion, either to make them angry, happy, sad, or numb. The effects last as long as Manuel can maintain his concentration, which depends on the scale of usage; he can maintain control over a single person for hours at a time, if necessary, but groups of 50 or more for only a few minutes at best.
