|Ability To||Psychically manipulate earth (dirt, rock, sand, etc)|
Also Known As
- Earth Control/Earth Manipulation
- Earthen Control/Earthen Manipulation
This is the ability to psychically manipulate earth.
One with this ability can psychically move earth about as though by Telekinesis, at will. In addition, one can psychically alter earth's texture, density, fluidity, temperature and the like, at will. Furthermore, one can psychically induce or prevent natural earthen phenomena (ie sinkholes, quicksand, mudslides, earthquakes, volcanic eruptions), at will. One can also psychically shape earth into tools and constructs, at will. One can even psychically cause ambient sediment to coalesce into earth, out of thin air, at will.
Earth is such a broad name for various related material--it includes soil/dirt, rock, metal, minerals/crystals, sand, and even molten rock and molten metal (ie magma/lava). However, due to the different consistencies of such materials, a Geokinetic is often most skilled in only one or a few of these materials. Most commonly, the user is skilled in the use of dirt or rock, though it may vary depending on the environment they are from.
For example, if a young girl Terra comes from a desert land, she might have an easier time with the dexterity and finesse needed for manipulation of sand, while manipulation of dirt and rock may occur to her as a crude and brutish art, not worth giving extended practice.
Toph Beifong, on the other hand, comes from a richly fertile plain, where there can be found all manner of dirt and rock, as well as sand plains--she even lives within decent distance of jewel quarry, a junkyard, a mine and metal refinery. She takes full advantage of as many earthen materials as are available to her, eventually mastering them all, and more.
- Geokinetic powers are numerous and highly varied in nature.
