The power to have an extremely keen sense of taste. Variation of Enhanced Senses.
- Gustatory Enhancement
- Perfect Taste
The user has accurate sense of taste, allowing them to sense both harmful and beneficial things, as all basic tastes are classified as either aversive or appetitive, depending upon the effect the things they sense have on our bodies. Sweetness helps to identify energy-rich foods, while bitterness serves as a warning sign of poisons.
The user might even be able to tell certain things about people if they taste something the person they're describing ate/drank previously, such as gender. Or taste the chemicals in the air as opposed to using their mouths to making physical contact with something in order to sense said harmful and beneficial things.
