  • Faustian Bargain

Capabilities

The user can give a person a power, an object of power or change nearly any event within their power to something as trivial as transporting them to a location or as simple as knowledge on something. Other uses include being their servant till they die or something as extreme as giving them a plot coupon.

They can also create their own contract granting something within a contract's payment being as no payment.

The user can take anything from a contracted client be it their powers, emotions, memory, soul or event in their past or future and maybe even someone connected to the client who they can choose to make him or her their servant. The contract can be fulfilled by doing some task or arduous payment.

User can bend the agreement to their own desires limited only by their power and therefore they can change the contracted into a monster as a way to give them a power. As long the agreement didn't say they could not perform a certain action their restraints are somewhat relative. The user can also simply agree to grant the person what they want without telling them what their payment is or when they will pay it.
