The power to
gain powers through a symbiotic relationship with an antithetical being. Sub-power of Opposing Forces Manipulation. Variation of Symbiosis.
The user can gain powers through a symbiotic relationship with an antithetical being. The symbionts (host and/or symbiote) are diametrically opposed to each other in terms of their natures; however, by linking with the symbiote, the host can acquire unique, supernatural powers beyond their individual capabilities. Due to the polarized, often chaotic relationship, this type of
Symbiosis, more than others, can come with a price.
The antithetical entity may take over the host’s mind and/or body (
Possession). The power wielded may be dangerous to the user.
Powerful antithetical entity may harm or even destroy host’s body.
Bond Destruction could defeat the user. May require a supernatural contract.
Symbiosis may only be possible through link with opposing entity.
Opposing forces must have a common goal for symbiosis to work.
