Empathy is the ability to sense and read the emotions of other beings. This power is often triggered by compassion, allowing users to connect with and understand others. This power contains many different aspects, as emotions are the source to all magical powers, thus allowing users to manipulate the powers of others as well. Experienced users may also become able to manipulate the emotions of others. When first gaining this power, it can be difficult to control. Inexperienced users will often be overwhelmed by the emotions and have trouble shutting it off. They can also be overcome by the emotions of others and act on them as if they were their own. However, users will eventually master it and use it as will.
As users become more experienced, they will be able to read the emotions of others as desired. They can become able to sense when others are nervous or scared and can use the power as a lie detector.
Empathy is a rare gift and can only be handled by beings that are meant to have the power. When others gain this power, it will eventually overwhelm them, which can drive them insane and even kill them.
