The power to control photons of light with one’s mind. Also known as Photokinesis. Not to be confused with Heliokinesis.


The user can control light. Can bend light to generate meager illusions, become partially invisible, send forth dazzling blinding rays, generate serene crepuscular rays, and even concentrate all surrounding light into a beam, shape and control light, create cloaks, and solidify it.
