"Elaine — you'll die, too. And my curse is knowing that I'll be there to see it. It's my atonement, you see — it's my punishment for lettin' John Coffey ride the lightning. For killing a miracle of God. You'll be gone like all the others, and I'll have to stay. Oh, I'll die eventually; of that, I'm sure. I have no illusions of immortality. But I will have wished for death long before Death finds me. In truth, I wish for it already."
― Paul Edgecomb (The Green Mile)

The power to prevent a serious illness, ailment or injury from ending an individual's life. Not to be confused with Healing.


The user can prolong the time a seriously ill or severely injured individual has to live and prevent them from succumbing to death prematurely.

This power may also be used to preserve a severed body part to keep it alive and then simply reattach it instead of having it die from necrosis.




  • May require constant physical contact.
  • Unlike Healing, the power doesn't get rid of the illness; it merely prolongs the individual's life.
  • May physically drain the user.
  • If the user keeps preventing the illness, it may get worse.
  • May not prevent physical injuries.
