Users become the living embodiment of despair and gain the ability to feed off of the despair of everyone and everything, including themselves. Users can convert despair into energy and use it as a full source to extend their own life span or as a weapon. They may never age and may be immune to death unless certain conditions are met.
- Without despair the user is weakened.
- Stronger users of Hope Embodiment will be able to overcome the user.
