"I'd ask you to sit down, but, you're not going to anyway. And don't worry about the vase.
"What vase?"
(Neo turns to look for a vase, and as he does, he knocks over a vase of flowers, which shatters on the floor)
"That vase."
"I'm sorry..."
"I said don't worry about it. I'll get one of my kids to fix it."
"How did you know?"
"Ohh, what's really going to bake your noodle later on is, would you still have broken it if I hadn't said anything?"
― The Oracle and Neo (The Matrix)

The user possesses the power of a seer (also called clairvoyant, prophet, oracle, or diviner), an individual who can see things hidden from others and also has the ability to predict the future or speak for the gods. A seer usually acts as a guide, whether it be for good or evil depends on the user in question. Seers also have special knowledge of the divine or supernatural realms and some receive special wisdom, power or understanding from deities or spirits. Seers are individuals closest to what one would call the "absolute truth" of the world. The abilities of each seer will vary as well as the cost, if there is any, for their gift.



Powerful seers can reach nearly or even fully divine status:


  • Seers connected to the gods may be limited to what god shows them.
  • Seers limitation will depend on the user but they can run the gamut.
    • Seeing things but unable to change them.
    • Seeing things but they are murky or unclear.
    • Seeing only possibilities.
    • The visions may take a toll on the mind and the body.
