Empowerment is the ability to strengthen oneself due to various circumstances and outside forces that may or may not be under their control. Unlike Statistics Amplification, empowerment is often involuntary and inherent to each character rather than an activated ability.
- Might become weakened when faced with an opposing force/emotion (I.E. a person empowered by compassion starts feeling hate).
- A lack of their force/emotion could cause them to lose their power entirely.
