- "You're alive. Congratulations. That means you've got the aptitude. If you didn't, you'd be dead. You've just obtained a talent. No... it's more accurate to say it was pulled from your mind. The worse the villain, the more they have... This talent that the man named DIO called a Stand."
- ― Keicho Nijimura to Angelo (JoJo's Bizarre Adventure Part IV Diamonds are Unbreakable)
- "Over time, we became less human and more ... divine. Kain would enter the state of change and emerge with a new gift. Some years after the master, our evolution would follow. Until I had the honor of surpassing my lord."

- Evolutionary Process
User can enhance themselves and others via accelerating the evolution process by triggering a bodily recovery system, restructuring their genome and upgrading to a better physical form. Upgrading can lead to new physical changes and enhancements or perhaps extra parts, natural armor or weapons. High-end wielders of this ability can control the very flow and essence of all progressive evolutions.
