Capabilities

User with this ability either is or can transform into a Tenshi (female tennyo, tennin, ten no tsukai (lit. heavenly messenger), hiten (lit. flying heaven)), spiritual beings found in Japanese Buddhism similar to western angels, nymphs or fairies. They are unnaturally beautiful women dressed in ornate, colorful kimonos (traditionally in five colors), exquisite jewelry, flowing scarves that wrap loosely around their bodies, and usually shown carrying lotus blossoms as a symbol of enlightenment or playing musical instruments such as the biwa, or flute.

Tennin can fly, a fact generally indicated in art by their colored or feathered kimonos, called hagoromo (lit. feather dress). In some legends, tennin are unable to fly without these kimonos (and thus cannot return to heaven). More rarely, they are shown with feathered wings.
