- History Manipulation/Revisionism

The user can selectively alter the past of a target (whether living, object, place, etc.) and determine when, where, what, how, or even why something happened in the past.
- Combat Perception
- Enhanced Preparedness
- History Absorption
- History Reading

- Temporal Erasure
- May cause massive after effects. For an example from the Pendragon series: The Hindenburg is stopped from blowing up; however, unforeseen by everyone, the survival of the dirigible allows Germany to get hold of plans for the Manhattan Project smuggled on-board and thus to develop nuclear weaponry which allows them to win WWII. Stopping 100 deaths causes millions more.
- Alterations may fade after death.
- May be unable to change the present. If so, user cannot change the past in a way that would negate their present and/or cause a time paradox.
