So in [community profile] xavier_institute, Krista's superpower is psychic manipulation, with 3 main abilities (2 of which are currently active):

Emotional Manipulation: Exactly what it says on the tin. Usable at a distance, but more effective when she's got a connection to someone, whether that's friendship or just touch and eye contact. Difficult to detect if she's making small changes, but not so much if she's making dramatic ones.

Memory Manipulation: Can erase or restore memories, including ones that were suppressed naturally or by a psychic other than her (assuming they're not much more powerful.) I will NOT use this power on player characters without asking specifically in each instance or at other players' request.

Empathy: Currently dormant, otherwise what it says on the tin. She could in theory sense others' emotions at a range of up to a football field or so away, but it's not happening anytime soon.

What I'd like to hear from other players:

Can Krista manipulate your character's emotions?
If she ever unlocks her empathy, can Krista read your character's emotions?

You can also use this post to opt-out of being affected by her powers in general, or to request Memory Shenanigans.

She can mess with Kags emotions and read them too.

While ideally I'd love to discuss each time as it comes up (excuse to chat with you!!!) General permissions:

Aqua - emotional manipulation. Sure, but results may vary, due to her training, use at your own risk, due to her past and the fact that I have no clue what will happen if her control ever snaps.
Empathy - Sure!!! Could be fun for people to see what lies behind the control of her training. Especially in the Black Bird.

Greg - Sure to both. His emotions are things of the moment and run strong, burning brightly like a blaze before realizing it has finished all its tinder. He has the potential for something similar, so we should co-ordinate and have some fun!

Eli - Do with her what you wish. At this point she'd just be happy for any human/mutant contact at all... She is up to the "even negative attention is still attention" phase.

Tiamaris - Empathy is fine, I would rather not emotional manipulation on him, however. He needs to learn to control his emotions on his own, and his state of mind hinges on that control. He is still learning, and still fragile. Even trying to help might only make him more suicidal in the long run.

Rhia - empathy sure, not that it's needed, she's an open book emotionally. I'd rather not emotional manipulation in general, but if something really calls for it, feel free to ask me. :D

I already said on the CR Meme, but with Shindou you can manipulate away! His mental defenses are for shit unless he knows in advance to expect psychic interference, and even then they're not much better.

OOC, Krista's welcome to try the same on Al Swearengen, with the proviso that IC he would probably threaten her with serious physical harm if he noticed it.

Manipulation: I would prefer to take this on a case by case basis! But in general, where Eren and Adachi are concerned, she can manipulate their emotions, if she manages to form a connection with either of them.

Caveat: it will definitely affect their CR strongly if either of them realize what she's doing. They will both be really pissed off.

Reading: It's actually easy to read Eren's emotions even without a special power! Haha, but yes, this is okay, although Eren is much easier to read than Adachi. However, once she accesses this ability, I'll specify within tags what emotions she's able to pick up on.

It's OK with me re: Alric! He may not like it much, though, although he tries to be polite and understanding.

Yes to all of these for Utsuho here; I don't know why I didn't comment earlier, fff.

Flandre is good for everything except memory meddling.

Both of these things are absolutely fine, for all of my characters (Cael, Liara, Rin).

Meiling and Marisa I'm cool with everything.

Kisume is where I'd be a bit difficult. Everything but memory unless it was needed for information on Kisume. And...highly likely would need erased after unlocking those memories. Her past she locked away and forgot for a good reason /nod o7
