Also Called

  • Clay Body/Physiology
  • Lutumkinetic Body/Mimicry/Physiology


User is made up of or can transform their body completely into clay. Users' transformed form is anatomically identical to their normal form, aside of being made of clay, in which case it contains all to organs and is somewhat vulnerable to attacks. Alternately the user can transform into homogeneous matter, without any part of their form being more important than the other.

Users abilities depend on the level of moisture they contain: semi-solid clay can simply absorb most attacks and even enemies or items, it is malleable and nearly impossible to actually hurt; dry clay is nearly stone-like in hardness but fragile.
