HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
Being able to move objects using the power of one’s mind

DESCRIPTION:
This skill might take the form of moving an object from one place to another or manipulating the shape of an object to take on a new shape. This is a highly contested talent, and many disbelieve it exists, but within the realm of fiction, this talent could be the result of a genetic attribute, brain trauma, being hit by lightning, or just about anything else that can be dreamed up.
