Superpowers are what differentiates supublics from regular human beings. In essence, one is classified as a supublic if they possess superpowers.
- Main article: Triad Prana
The Triad Prana are a set of three artefacts that are the origin of superpowers come together to form one. The Triad Prana share each a little of the other's functions, however each one has its own specific capabilities.
- Main article: Nine Stuff
The Nine Stuff are a set of nine artefacts that were created to balance the constant chaos between the Triad Prana. The Nine Stuff are more powerful the higher the number of the item, with the top three Nine Stuff having a level of power near to the Triad Prana.
Nature of SuperpowersEdit
When a supublic uses their superpowers it slowly drains them. Once a supublic's powers have been depleted, they are unable to use their superpowers again until their powers recover; the recovery speed of one's powers rapidly increases via strong emotions such as extreme rage.All supublics have basic abilities and skills that they are capable of possessing. This includes enhanced physical capabilities (such as enhanced strength, speed, durability, endurance etc.), the high jump power, the fall-slow/freefall skill and the ability to fire Beam Bursters. All of these basic abilities and skills can be improved through training and experience. All supublics can develop three powers through training and practice:
- A supublic's superpower reserves at their maximum limit when they are in a crisis. This is the best way to determine their potential.
- Present superpower reserves which can be used to calculate a supublic's current strength.
- Momentary superpower reserves used for short instant bursts.
On very rare occasions, due to a mutation or deformation of a supublic's genes or hormones after their superpowers manifest, their bodies develop abnormal symptoms. While these abnormal symptoms usually cause unfortunate transformational side-effects, such as with Snatcher and Hacky, on even rarer cases the side-effects are beneficial, as with Phoenix.
The Beam Burster is a long-distance offensive skill which focuses a beam of energy from the user's hands, mouth or eyes (or even their entire body). Its speed, power and range depend on the supublic's individual abilities and relative power level. When it's used, it consumes a supublic's superpowers. Despite a Beam Burster's destructive potential, they can be blocked or deflected.
A special skill is a unique ability or skill that all supublics possess. Supublics are only born with a single special skill and, before the attacks against the Committee, it was almost unheard of for a non-hero to possess more than one special skill (superheroes get their second skill from the cape they wear). Despite this, possessing more than one special skill is still rare. Four years after the fall of the Committee, it is now much more often to encounter villains possessing multiple special skills.
