The ability to manipulate time.

Also Called

  • Chrono Control/Force
  • Chronokinesis
  • Fourth Dimension Manipulation
  • Horokinesis
  • Tempokinesis
  • Temporal Alteration/Bending/Control/Manipulation/Warping
  • Time Alteration/Bending/Control/Warping/Manipulation
  • Tempus Infinitum

Capabilities

The user can manipulate time in the general area or for a specific target in various ways, with the most basic of acts revolving around accelerating, slowing, stopping, and even rewinding or looping time. The range of the affected area is proportional to the mastery of the user, with those at higher levels being able affect the entire space-time continuum.

Since "time" exists and flows within "space", the two are interrelated, and by manipulating time, one is also distorting space proportionally. The effects of this relative distortion can vary, however. For example, controlling time of a mere object or person may not affect the space they reside in, whereas twisting the time-stream of an entire region of space can cause the area itself to warp. Additionally, due to time being so closely intertwined with our three-dimensional space, manipulating it might not affect another dimension, such as heaven or hell, in the same way it affects our own.
