" I try to resist. I really do. But he slides his fingers through my thoughts, and blocks and tweaks and rearranges, until what I see is what he wants. No path makes sense to me except the one he offers. There is no hope and no salvation. There is only Etrigan. I had no idea I was capable of this. But people change"

The power to harness the power of a demon or beast living inside of that said person. Variation of Inner Being.

Also Called

  • Inner Demon/Monster

Capabilities

The user can harness the power of their inner beast; an innate creature that lies within them that grants them great power, strength and ferocity. This allows them to use their unique abilities to vastly increase their own existing ones and/or unlock new ones. The nature of the beast is naturally bound to the user's characteristics, experience and inner nature, which they can ultimately manifest into potentially anything, be they wild or tame, singular or multiple, and so on.
