"This is the best damn thing that ever happened to me. Well, now that I've learned to control it, I'm like Superman or something. I can hear rain coming from forty miles away. I can even hear someone's moods, the tiniest changes in a heartbeat."
― Dale Smither, Heroes
"Speaking of which, I'm sensing something big and out of control heading for us."
― Astrid Hofferson, Dragons: Race to the Edge
