"The blood is the life."
― Count Dracula misquoting and missing the point of Genesis 9:4 in Dracula (1931)
"Why blood? Why Dawn's blood? I mean, why couldn't it be, like, a lymph ritual?"
"'Cause it's always gotta be blood."
"We're not actually discussing dinner right now -"
"Blood is life, lackbrain. Why do you think we eat it? It's what keeps you going, makes you warm, makes you hard, makes you other than dead. 'Course it's her blood."
― Xander and Spike, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

The power to manipulate blood. Variation of Bodily Fluid Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Blood Control
  • Hemokinesis/Haemokinesis
  • Hematokinesis
  • Sanguinarian Control/Manipulation
  • Sanguine Control/Manipulation

Capabilities

Users can create, shape, move, control, interact and manipulate blood, a body fluid in humans and other animals that delivers necessary substances such as nutrients and oxygen to the cells and transports metabolic waste products away from those same cells. The majority of users are only able to exert control over the blood of themselves, using them for various purposes, such as for rituals, examining, or most commonly combat. They can shape their blood into tendrils to strike enemies from afar or use it to trap opponents in a prison of blood. Beware dying of blood loss for users that use their own blood or being present in a wet environment, as exposure to water will cause the membrane of red blood cells to tear, making 45% of blood uncontrollable.

Another use of blood manipulation is controlling the blood within the body of oneself, increasing physical abilities by speeding up the transport of nutrients and oxygen via blood to all parts of their system, improving energy and power. They can also use this to speed up healing by immediately clotting their blood, preventing blood loss and speeding up the recovery process, gaining a form of manual Healing Factor. More advanced users would be able to manipulate blood from anywhere, including other bodies, allowing them to instantly induce death by making blood explode from inside out.
