1. Children of Iapetus have the ability to conjure a spear, polearm, or whatever piercing weapon they prefer out of pure force which can be used for combat; however, only one weapon can be conjured at a time and it cannot be bigger than the one who conjured it. They can telekinetically control the weapon they conjure, and it is enchanted to be more effective at piercing defenses; for example magical barriers, metal armor or shields may crack and break under repeated strikes. They will also gradually gain control over their existing weapon of choice, over time, but to a weaker extent than the conjured weapon.

They can include themselves in a link if they wish, and if they use their power to amplify or dull their own pain, it will affect everyone else in a link too.
