This is the ability to move faster than human norms.

Uses/Applications (Pros)

One with this ability could access speed sufficient to outrun others in pursuit, evasion, combat and the like, at will. In addition, one could access speed sufficient to outpace others in mental processing, perception and awareness (ie reading at high speeds, as well as detecting objects and events normally to fast to notice), at will. Furthermore, one could access speed sufficient to defy gravitational norms (ie running across walls, ceilings or bodies of water), at will. One could also access speed sufficient to bolster the metabolism (ie digestive, immune and healing processes). One could even access speed sufficient to bolster motion at the molecular level (passively, to defy harmful effects from friction; actively, to pass through solid matter), at will.
