Also Called

  • Divine Affinity/Channeling/Grace


The user is able to draw strength from powerful divine forces of different gods in order to increase their natural abilities. Often times, this occurs when one gives prayer to the gods, comes in contact with a relic of their power, or becomes a conduit of their energy. If the user is deemed worthy, they may be able to keep the powers they are blessed with.




  • May require a prayer to the gods.
  • May need to be deemed worthy by the gods.
  • May have to meet a god face to face in order to obtain power.
  • May require an item from/through which the power is drawn.
  • May be overwhelmed by Demonic Empowerment.
  • This ability isn't entirely exclusive as those with wicked intentions can also gain strength from powerful gods.
