An Esper with the gift to control and manipulate electricity and magnetism.

Making an Electromaster[edit]

Some Electromasters are humans born with the ability to control electricity. Electromasters are typically the result of numerous scientific surgeries, drugs, and surgeries. As a result they cannot use magic.

An Electromaster is a unique ability to Espers. An Esper is an "Ability User" from "To Aru Majutsu no Index", they are the results of numerous scientific experiments, drugs, and surgeries.

Electromasters have the power to generate and manipulate electricity. This means that they can also manipulate magnetism. “Aside from generating and manipulating electricity, an Electromaster is said to be able to sense all phenomenon related to his or her power. All electric fields from the surrounding nature, along with all magnetic and electromagnetic information are processed subconsciously…” (Index Wiki) Those who are strong Electromasters also have the ability to see the flow of electrons, example: Electromasters are able to predict and deflect incoming electricity (or electron) based attacks.

All Electromasters involuntarily produce a strong electromagnetic field, which bothers animals and defends against mental attacks.

Electromasters are best as range damage dealers, but can hold their own in a melee fight, provided they have proper training. They are also able to apply an electrical current to any types of metal weapons for additional damage.

Electromasters in the World[edit]

Enough of this, let's flip a coin
—Drake, Human Electromaster

Electromasters are supposed to be a modern class, however you could do whatever.

Daily Life: Electromasters spend most of their time training their ability thriving for strength.

Notables: Cole MacGrath, Kessler, Mikoto Misaka

Organizations: Because electromasters are born, they do not belong to public organizations as an effect of being an electromaster. That said, due to their power forming at birth, the likelihood of their parents and ancestors also being psions in one form or another is more often than not, even if they do not share the same type of powers. For example, a pyrokinetic may give birth to an electromaster or another form of psion such as the general conception with telekinesis and telepathy, a hydrokinetic and so on.

NPC Reactions: Electromasters are very rare to ever cross, they look like regular people. But after they get mad or agitated electrical shocks start to appear on them, also any animals near them are damaged due to their constant Magnetic Field.
