"Hers was an ability type most often relegated to the supporting role, but [Sanko] had lived long enough to become an exception. She’d used pan-rozum to do more than simply fuse elements together. She’d learned to fuse herself into them, to become an entity of dirt and rock and stone. Integration may not have allowed her to create her own elements, even with pan-rozum, but that was a small price to pay when she could wield almost every element of every type of ground in the world as an extension of her body.
Everything beneath the Rainlords’ feet belonged to the Gargoyle now."
― The Zombie Knight

The power to transform into or have a physical body made up of earth or other earthen substance. Technique of Earth Manipulation. Variation of Elemental Mimicry.

Also Called

  • Earth Body/Physiology
  • Earthen/Geo/Geokinetic/Terra/Terrakinetic Body/Mimicry/Physiology


The user is made up of or can transform their body completely into earth, including soil, stone, metal, clay or other earthen substance. A user's transformed form is anatomically identical to their normal form, aside of being made of earth, 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.

Exact physical abilities the user has depend on which variation they are using: sand, clay and soil are malleable and hard to truly harm; crystal, metal and stone are hard and grant powerful physical attacks but aren't particularly flexible.






  • May slow the user.
  • May be restricted to single variation.
