Ability Name: Absent Energy Manipulation
General Description: At first this ability seems like the user is manipulating simple shadows and darkness, when in reality they can manipulate much more than that; being the absence of energy. Their shadows or darkness has no energy, meaning they could remove things like light, sound, and heat from it. Eventually the user is able to even manipulate a spiritual and mental type of darkness which allows them to manipulate psychic darkness, which allows them to cloud minds and suppress the memories of their targets. The user can force targets to face their inner evil or bring it out of someone.
They can also create, shape and manipulate darkness and shadows themselves. By itself, darkness is mostly used to cloud everything into total darkness, but by accessing a dimension of dark energy it can be channeled to a variety of effects, both as an absence of light and a solid substance.
D-Rank: The user can only manipulate shadows or darkness that their own shadow touches or that they're in. They can intensify them or cause them to move. They have excellent night vision, having the ability to see in low light conditions or even total darkness perfectly well.
C-Rank: The user can manipulate all shadows and darkness without having to touch it. The are able to create a field of absolute impenetrable darkness that completely negates sight. The user is able to become undetectable as long as they are in darkness or a shadow and they can hide objects/subjects by shrouding them in darkness, hiding them from even clairvoyant sight. They can solidify or give solid-like properties to darkness/shadows with the level of solidity to create tentacles/tendrils/threads to attack or bind.
B-Rank: The user can create portals using darkness/shadows. They travel through these "portals" via shadows/darkness, merging into shadows/darkness and appearing anywhere else where there is shadows/darkness. The user can transform theirs or others shadows into solid beings. Anything that happens to the shadow will be reflected in the true body; in short, a form of "reverse" shadow puppetry. The user can create, shape and manipulate psychic darkness through touch, which allows them to cloud minds with mental darkness and suppress the memories of their targets.
A-Rank: The user takes control over motor functions of others against their will as if they were a marionette via shadows, subjects are still conscious, but can’t resist the user's puppet control. This can be executed by infusing ones shadow into the shadow of the target. Anything the user does, the victim will be forced to mimic. They are able to bring out someone's inner darkness. They can make people say their darkest desires and can possibly even make them act on them. The stronger a person's will is, the harder it is for the user to make them do so. This can also be used to bring out intense anger in someone.
S-Rank: The user's shadows take on the properties of absent energy, causing them to be able to freeze anything within, remove sound all together, and even remove oxygen. User can create, shape and manipulate dark energy. It can be channeled to a variety of effects as an absence of light, a blast of dark energy, force-fields, etc. In physics, dark energy is a hypothetical energy that permeates space, similar to dark matter, and makes up for about 68.3% of the universe.
The user can materialize their's and other's dark thoughts/emotions into physical darkness and externalize or project it in different forms. The user can force someone to face their inner evil, either in a mental struggle or even creating a physical shadowed version of them that has black eyes and are surrounded by wispy black shadows. When someone's inner darkness is faced, it's arguably more powerful than the good half of the being because it is typically repressed and it knows all of a person's weaknesses. They're basically a physical manifestation of the being's past wrong doing, or current doing. They know the being like they know themselves, and that's a frightening thought. Victims are usually corrupted, driven insane, or outright killed by the sensation of this ability.
