Aerokinesis also known as anemokinesis or Spirarekinesis is the ability to manipulate air. It is done by controlling and altering air molecules in the surrounding atmosphere. This takes immense concentration and training to be done to a visible standard (due to the fact that air is being manipulated on a molecular level; not visible to the naked eye). However after putting in enough hours of practice and mastering aerokinesis to the point where this can be visibly done; a wielder of this ability can manipulate the flow of air in a multitude of ways and cause events such as light breezes, gusts of wind and more.
Strengths and limitations of aerokinesis
As with any ability; aerokinesis too has a variety of both strengths and weaknesses that establish the overall effectiveness of the ability. One of the biggest limitations that is immediately noticeable when attempting to use this ability is the immense focus required in order to create or manipulate the air. Even a master of this ability can run into difficulties gaining the necessary composure required to enact even a small breeze from a calm atmosphere. This is a massive limitation for aerokinesis users and is almost the Achilles heel to the power. It makes using the ability in every day life a difficult task as preparation time is required to calm oneself and gain maintainable focus. Obviously though this preparation time can be shortened with experience, however it is almost impossible to eliminate it entirely. Additionally the serenity captured prior to putting aerokinesis into use must be maintained throughout the course of the powers usage which leads into the next limit.
The next limitation stems from the fact that in order to create a constant flow of air in a particular direction or circuit, focus must constantly be kept. This may not seem like a big issue at first as it could be assumed that the amazement in the fact a user of this ability is physically moving surrounding air with there mind would be drawing enough to maintain focus. Obviously this is true, aerokinesis is an incredible thing to perform and bear witness to. However what makes this a limitation is the fact that even the slightest distraction or obstacle could interrupt you and disrupt the flow of air. This still might not seem like a massive problem for those who excel in complete concentration on tasks at hand in life. However when you step back and take a look at some examples of situations where this limit may arise as an issue; you can see it is a clear problem when using aerokinesis.
Some examples of this issue at play could include; getting a text message and the sound of the ringer or a vibration in your pocket causing you to immediately shift your train of thought for an instant. A candy wrapper or other object flying into your viewpoint and it shifts your mindset for an instance or a strange sound being heard nearby or off in the distance that distracts and causes you to take a moment to consider what the sound may have been. Even just getting an itch in the middle of attempting to use this ability can throw a user off and force them to start the process all over again. When you consider all 5 of the human senses and how so many things can be picked up by these senses forcing you to act or ponder, it is clear that this limitation is a major issue with aerokinesis.
Another limitation for this power is the fact that air cannot be created and then manipulated. This means a surrounding atmosphere of air is require in order to put this power into use. This isn’t a big issue though as a person would very rarely be in a location without a surrounding atmosphere of air due to the sheer fact that it is a pivotal part of human life. A wielder of aerokinesis may end up in a situation where the air pressure is different then it
regularly is on the ground; this might complicate the use of this ability however it can still be utilized in these conditions. However adjustments in technique may be required under different air pressures. Some places a user may end up in where the air pressure is different could include a mountain or tall structure, a plane and an underground cave, bunker or other area.
The final limitation of this power is one that comes with almost every ability and that is the range it can be used. That is how far could a user of aerokinesis send there gust of wind or other area of air being manipulated? This mainly depends upon the users experience. A master of aerokinesis may be able to blow a can over 2 kilometers away with ease whilst a beginner may struggle with one 10 meters away. Additionally, the strength of the wind being produced is lost over distance even though the margin of loss is obviously far slimmer for advanced users.
With all these limitations one may reconsider learning aerokinesis. However when you look at and even picture the strengths that come with this ability, it is easy to see why this is an amazing power to master. The first strength of this power stems from its strong link with atmokinesis. For those unfamiliar with atmokinesis; it is the ability to manipulate the weather. When other abilities are incorporated this includes wind, lightning, rain and practically every other weather phenomenon. By incorporating mastery in aerokinesis with atmokinesis it allows the creation of things like tornadoes, hurricanes, and other windy weather conditions.
When you step back and take a look at all the chaos aforementioned conditions like that cause, it’s clear how big of a power it is to be able to create them. But it’s not just a capability of producing something that makes this a strength; it’s also the fact that these weather phenomenons can be diverted or even halted by implementing aerokinetic abilities. This can mean holding the power to prevent countless deaths and costs that come with the property damage caused by these disasters. Obviously though it takes strong mastery in both aerokinesis and atmokinesis in order to enact such an incredible, life saving feat.
Another strength that comes with this ability is the power to move objects using wind. Once a user has enough experience to manipulate air so it can travel with force in multiple directions, objects can be moved around using this power. This is great for when using this ability in everyday life and it is almost like having the power of telekinesis. You no longer have to get up and get the remote when lying down watching a show or movie, simply create an upward and horizontal wind and bring the remote straight to your hands. The only limit with using aerokinesis in this way is it is dependent on how much wind force can be generated by the wielder of this ability. However most objects you will need to move in every day life won’t weigh a whole lot so moving them shouldn’t be a big issue.
The final strength that comes with this power is the ability to amplify hearing. When someone speaks, vibrations of the noise alter the flow of surrounding air molecules. By utilizing aerokinesis, these molecules can be amplified resulting in the sound becoming far clearer. This could be great for hearing people’s whispers or private conversations from afar. All in all it’s clear that aerokinesis is a tremendous ability and although it may have some limitations that effect the way and extent to which it can be used; the strengths easily outweigh these limits.
