Entropy manipulation is an energy-based ability. In practice, it is similar to Energy Manipulation, except that the user can only access the unused energy in a system, rather than manipulating all the available energy. An inherent part of this ability is being able to detect energy levels of any kind. Once the current level of entropy is determined, the user of this ability can adjust it, resulting in a change in the system. This applies to anything, such as a glass of ice, a room, or a living organism. Increasing an object's entropy lowers the amount of kinetic energy the object has; decreasing it raises the kinetic energy.
Entropy is, very basically, a measure of the amount of unavailable energy in a system. The amount of this energy varies, as long as the system is not in equilibrium, but it will generally increase until it reaches equilibrium (as stated in the second law of thermodynamics). Entropy is directly related to heat, in that all energy eventually becomes heat. Also, a system is a group of bodies (molecules, atoms, cells) that are related and bound by a common set of characteristics, such as a glass of ice in a warm room. An isolated system is one that is not directly related to any other systems.
