The power to manipulate the scripts and writing system of an object or being to use against opponents. Variation of Literacy Manipulation.

Also Called

  • Writing System Manipulation


The user with this power can manipulate the meaning behind the character sign in a script or writing system to either manifest, attack, defend, summon, or other uses. The user can influence and manipulate the scripts and writing system or all cultures and societies, whether they are fictional, nonfictional, from earth, from another dimension or from outer space. Even ancient scripts fall under this power, that also includes runes.

Ex. Egyptian writing is often redundant: in fact, it happens very frequently that a word might follow several characters writing the same sounds, in order to guide the reader. For example, the word nfr, "beautiful, good, perfect", was written with a unique triliteral which was read as nfr.





  • May only be able to manipulate actual scripts and not some scribbly lines.
