Light Manipulation

Harry Potter using the "Lumos" spell for illumination.


The power to manipulate light.

User can create, shape and manipulate visible light, commonly referred to simply as light, is electromagnetic radiation that is visible to the human eye, and is responsible for the sense of sight.

Primary properties of visible light are intensity, propagation direction, frequency or wavelength spectrum, and polarisation, while its speed in a vacuum (299,792,458 meters per second/186,000 MPS) is one of the fundamental constants of nature. Visible light, as with all types of electromagnetic radiation (EMR), is experimentally found to always move at this speed in vacuum.

In common with all types of EMR, visible light is emitted and absorbed in tiny "packets" called photons, and exhibits properties of both waves and particles. This property is referred to as the wave–particle duality. The study of light, known as optics, is an important research area in modern physics.

Possible Uses

  • Create/generate/increase, absorb, shape and manipulate light and colors.
  • Absolute Light
  • Bend and/or shift light particles:
  • Flight/Levitation
  • Light Attacks
  • Light Negation
  • Light Solidification via controlling light.
    • Photokinetic Constructs, including weapons, armor, walls or allies/servants.
  • Move at light-speed.


  • May be unable to create light, being limited to manipulating only from already existing sources.
  • Distance, energy mass, precision, etc. depend upon of the knowledge, skill, and strength of the user.
  • Users light is affected by everything that all light is, unless they are powerful/skilled enough to overcome these limits:
    • Glass Manipulation and/or Reflection Manipulation bounces back by a reflective surface.
    • Gravity Manipulation bends light as a result of the gravitational lensing effect in General Relativity.
    • No matter how powerful the light is it will pass through anything completely transparent.
  • May be overwhelmed by Darkness Manipulation.
  • Photokinetic Immunity
  • Since light is a constant existing element, the user will have to keep any light constructs in check to keep them from going on forever.
