The ability to selectively alter the past of a target. Variation of Time Manipulation. Opposite to Future Manipulation. Not to be confused with Memory Manipulation.

Also Called

  • History Manipulation/Revisionism
  • Past Modification


The user can selectively alter the past of a target (whether living, object, place, etc.) and determine when, where, what, how, or even why something happened in the past.






  • May cause massive after effects. For an example from the Pendragon series: The Hindenburg is stopped from blowing up; however, unforeseen by everyone, the survival of the dirigible allows Germany to get hold of plans for the Manhattan Project smuggled on-board and thus to develop nuclear weaponry which allows them to win WWII. Stopping 100 deaths causes millions more.
  • Alterations may fade after death.
  • May be unable to change the present. If so, user cannot change the past in a way that would negate their present and/or cause a time paradox.
