Limitations

    • If the target has multiple powers, the user may only be able to mimic the one(s) they associate with that person.
    • If the user changes the emotion they associate with the target (e.g. love turns to hate), they may lose the replicated ability.

  • May only be able to use them when in close proximity to the source without training.
