Users of this ability can improve their own natural abilities far faster and to a much greater extent then other members of their species. This applies at a genetic level, allowing the body to keep up with the users own rapidly developing skills. As a result, users of this ability can (eventually) benefit from training that would otherwise cripple or kill a normal human being. This also applies to spiritual or magical power in users who possess such abilities.


  • Develop Enhanced Condition through constant improvement.
  • Gain new skills/abilities faster than your peers.
  • Develop genius level intellect through vigorous study.
  • Become expert-level anything in a fraction of the time required.
  • Potentially surpass the greatest masters of your field.



  • Power is not instantaneous, users still require time to develop skills.
  • May require help to continue developing past a certain point.
  • Some users may be limited to one area of expertise.
  • Training is still required to maintain skills.
  • May require drugs to help.
  • May require a certain object, individual, concept, ritual, etc. to activate.
