Powers / Abilities: Silkie is amphibious, able to survive in water as easily as air. She is aquakinetic, able to control water at a distance with her mind alone, allowing her to create powerful waterspouts to buffet foes. Silkie can also release charges of electrical energy on contact, sufficient to stun a heavily armoured foe. She can switch between her humanoid form and a "mantaform", not unlike a mermaid; in this latter form, she is able to fly or swim through water at incredible speeds.
