#20 Effervescence

| November 20, 2011 | 0 Comments


Arizona Appleton has always enjoyed an audience and the crowds come not to see her sing or speak, but to watch her dance. And once the crowd sees her, they are under her spell. Born as a low level psychic, Arizona is able to emit a weak pulse of hypnotic suggestion, not even strong enough to make an individual blink. But if there are enough minds near, she can use the “nodes” as mirrors and amplifiers. The more people around her, the stronger her control becomes, until she can control great mobs of people. In a lurch she can switch to controlling insect colonies and flocks of birds, but she prefers the human crowd. She promises her friends she would never use her powers for evil, but they worry. The more she sees society as “the collective” the less connected she feels to those around her.
