The power to gain one's sustenance through alternative means rather than the traditional ones.

Also Called

  • Alternative Metabolism


The user can gain their sustenance through other alternative means rather then traditional ones (eating, drinking, sleeping, etc). This could be done through something simple like exposing oneself to sunlight or moonlight to something more complex like consuming material which does not normally carry energy for survival such as fire and metal or resting by putting oneself in unusual positions like a meditative position, a standing position, or an inverted position.
