Water magic specialties

Post by Brianna Silverweb on Mon Jul 06, 2015 5:29 am

Below are the descriptions of what each specialty has the possibility of doing. The character may or may not be able to do all of what is listed depending on their adeptness with magic. Please be aware that not everything possible may be listed. If you wish to use or do something listed or unlisted, keep in mind the balance of magic.


~Hydromancer~

   Witches with this specialty can create, shape and manipulate water, inorganic compound with liquid, gas (steam, water vapour), and solid (ice) states, including changing them from one state to other. A witch with this ability can solidify water by causing the loose molecules to come together, with the level of solidity going from loose jello to metal-like hardness or beyond. More powerful users can convert water into the fourth phase, plasma. Because blood cells are 55% blood plasma, which in turn is up to 95% water, advanced witches can control blood via that water content, controlling the target by it, and even crystallize or evaporate it. This would take delicate control, as the blood plasma does contain other components. Water molecules are a medium for heat exchange in both its high heat capacity and coolant, thus allowing the witch to manipulate external thermal energy, and therefore the surrounding area's temperature.

   They can transform matter and objects, including living beings, in some cases, into water. The witch can generate bubbles/foam and is able to generate and project bubbles from their mouths. They can also generate fog, using it to blind those around them so they can escape or cloak the environment around them. Another use would be to use it to fight, hit and run while their foes cannot see them. This specialty commonly gives them a tremendous lung capacity and/or ability to use the oxygen very effectively enabling them to hold their breath for extended periods of time while staying active. This may also include birdlike lungs that allow them to keep their lungs constantly filled with fresh air.
   
   This specialty allows them to be able to generate water from inside their body and expel it out the mouth in various ways. From water bullets, streams with the force of a fire hose, all the way to controlling the temperature of the water from boiling to chilling cold. One of the more skilled abilities is that they can produce all manner of heated liquids, including water, oils, asphalt, grease etc. Usually the liquid is generated inside the user and rapidly heated to a dangerous level.

   Practiced witches with this specialty can become stronger, faster, more durable, etc. when they come in contact with water, possibly unlocking abilities related to the affinity and enhancing the existing powers. Some users may be able draw sustenance from the water or even slow or stop aging. They may also be able to transform their body completely into water or other liquid substance. Their transformed forms can be either anatomically identical to their normal forms, aside from being made of water, in which case they contain all organs and are somewhat vulnerable to attacks, or they can transform themselves into homogeneous matter, without any part of their form being more important than the other. This allows them to resist damage from being crushed, smashed, or flattened.
 
   The witch with this ability can create flood: an overflow of water that submerges land which is usually dry. Huge water waves can be called to crash down at their targets, washing everything away in a powerful torrent. The primary effects of flooding include loss of life, damage to buildings and other structures, including bridges, sewerage systems, roadways, and canals. The witch can generate whirlpools, swirling bodies of water that can be used to attack or trap enemies. Witches can also make rain fall, ranging anything from a light shower to a full rainstorm as another way to flood an area.  
       
   Another ability a witch with this specialty is that they can separate massive amounts of water, such as a lake or an ocean, to open road on the bottom for safe travel. They can control the lakes and rivers, but they cannot control the flora or fauna within the water. They can create tidal waves, sink islands, create water spouts and hurricane like rainstorms, etc. Some witches can perceive the movement of a body of water with extreme accuracy and determine where threats are placed in water sources. They can even understand the size of targets in water by perceiving the waves interfering with certain movements of bodies of water.


   

~Healing~

   Witches with this specialty can restore biotic organisms to their optimal health, curing damaged or withered organisms, wounds, broken bones, low vitality, and diseases/poisoning. Though they may potentially heal any form of bodily damage, the patient must be alive, even if hanging by a thin thread, in order to be healed; once the patient has died, it would transcend healing and would require resurrection instead. Emotional wounds and/or burdens are within their spectrum of healing but the pain of the injury will also carry over to them in terms of psychic pain. This power offers a comfortable touch and a healing means that is otherwise beyond the ones that heal physical injuries, since they lack the power to heal emotions. They can heal mental illnesses, disorders and other forms of mental trauma, to their healthy state and reverse the effects of mental tampering, such as mind control or memory loss. Another way a witch can heal others is with a kiss. A witch in this specialty may also have tears that can heal any wound it touches. They can heal any living being including humans, animals, plants, etc. If the healing properties in the tears are potent enough, they can cure poison and diseases and even revive the dead by crying on them

   Witches of healing can project an aura of healing and mending energies, focusing the energies they emit from themselves to those effected mending their physical wounds. They can even at a greater extent can cure infectious diseases and poisons, can heal one's mental state and/or even heal one's soul. This specialty can heal and repair any damage done to the soul of oneself or others. They can repair damage done by soul-affecting abilities and even rejoin soul fragments.

   The witch can enter a protective state, similar to a coma or Vegetative state, to regenerate and restore any injuries they may have sustained, typically done while submerged in water. When in this state, they can fall prey to things beyond their control. When they wake up, they will be a the peak of their health. They can also heal themselves by using water, absorbing the molecules and transferring medicament into the body at a molecular level, or having water molecules to repair and regenerate damaged cells and molecules.
   
       
       

~Aquatic life~

   The witches under this specialty can sense and/or understand the emotions of aquatic animals and vice versa. With practice they may be able to mimic/transform into amphibians, including toads, frogs, caecilians, and salamanders. They can also mimic/transform into fish, including hagfish, lampreys, and cartilaginous and bony fish.

   A witch with this specialty is able to survive and adapt to underwater environments, being able to breathe water in lieu of, or along with, a gaseous breathing medium, to swim well and to endure high water pressure and extreme water temperatures. They are able to use their senses to perceive normally regardless of the distortion/pressure of the water, possibly including ignoring various impurities that would otherwise reduce the visibility. To help with this, they can breathe in both water and air and are capable of staying underwater as long as they like and reemerge ready to breathe oxygen again.

  The witches with this have a tremendous lung capacity and/or ability to use the oxygen very effectively enabling them to hold their breath for extended periods of time while staying active. This may also include birdlike lungs that allow the user to keep their lungs constantly filled with fresh air. With this they are able to resist damage from being crushed, smashed, or flattened and can swim at incredible speeds.
 
       
       

~Visionary~

(divination, clairvoyance and scrying)
   Witches with this specialty are completely aware at all times of the true reality around them, potentially seeing through any optical and/or mental illusions that others attempt to deceive them with. They are able to sense spiritual/psychic beings. Commonly they are able to create, shape and manipulate illusions, causing targets to see, hear, touch, smell and/or taste things which do not actually exist or cause them to perceive things differently from what they truly are. Some can create complex and detailed worlds, others may be able to only alter the way they or the target are perceived.

   This specialty can allow the witch to share the sight of two or more people, the power can let others see what they are seeing from their point of view. They can even let others see their past sights and scenes, to some extent, as a way to relay information to them. A visionary can gain a direct visual information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than their physical sight. This allows them to act when they are unable to use their eyes. One of the more powerful skills is the ability to dream of something that is currently happening somewhere else, using the dream as if they were scrying.


 

~Channeler~

   Witches with this specialty are able to channel/harness energies in their surroundings, within themselves and others, to use for myriad of possibilities. They can absorb/assimilate energies into objects/themselves and/or transfer it into other beings. They can also absorb energy while removing it from the source, into their body, gaining some form of advantage, either by enhancing themselves, gaining the drained power, using it as power source etc., either temporarily or permanently. A witch is able to channel energy from souls, whether their own soul or others', and use the energy. They do not necessarily have to absorb souls, and are perfectly capable of using their own.
   
   Witches with this ability can channel energy through their body and project it in a concentrated and powerful blast of light which seems to manifest as magical energy or a kinetic force, conclusively throwing or repelling objects a considerable distance. This power has been displayed to contain mysterious supernatural effects, such as breaking illusion and reversing/removing spells. Energy channeling is also used for a number of purposes other than offensive blasts. It can be used to channel energies from one thing to another along with numerous other implementations.
