User can be anatomically identical to their normal form, aside of being made of radiation, in which case it contains all to organs and is somewhat vulnerable to attacks. Alternately the user can transform into homogeneous matter, without any part of their form being more important than the other.

Nigh Formed Radiation Beings are or can change into mostly physical beings, with the radiation flowing through their being, fortifying their cells, bones and muscles. Their power is mostly focused to their bodies and while they gain some amount of energy-attacks, the changes and applications are mostly internal.

Full-Formed Radiation Beings are completely formed of radiation, without anything truly left from their physical form. They gain impressive control over their form and vast capacity to expel energy in various ways.
