This is an incomplete list of powers and abilities if you have a power or ability you would like to consider for your character that is not listed request it's approval in the questions topic. If the mods deem it to be inappropriate to the rp it will not be allowed.

All Witches
All Witches share a few abilities that kick in around the young age of twelve to thirteen. 'The Power' remains dormant within the Witch until their 13th birthday, during which the user "gets a taste" of The Power. It is described for the first "taste" of 'The Power' as a kind of test. The user is granted untold power and grows more powerful each year until they Ascend full power on the eve of his 18th birthday. If a Witch has not come into one of these powers by such an age they are deemed mortal and placed into Guardian training (see Hierarchy). Some Witches hold stronger affinities in particular powers than others and it is considered their occupational part within the coven should they be extremely gifted in such matters.

◘Spell-Casting/Spellcraft - Affinity for casting spells and performing rituals.

◘Telekinesis - The ability to manipulate objects with the power of the mind. This is the most commonly seen power, displayed by many witches as a strength.

◘Clairvoyance/Telepathy/Thought-Casting - Power to mentally receive and/or transmit information. All Witches can communicate with one another silently this helps when trying to conceal certain messages form others. An ability that can manifest as the power to read the minds of others, commonly known as telepathy.

◘Heightened Senses - The power to posses extremely accurate senses. Enhanced Hearing, Vision, Taste, & Smell. Drugs or other means can negate or remove these senses unless they are reversible. (view spoiler)

◘Enhanced Condition - The power to remain in the peak physical and/or mental condition of user's species with little or no maintaining. (view spoiler)

◘Potioncraft/Potion-Making - Affinity for an extensive knowledge of "Green Magic," including conventional herbalism as well as more sophisticated botanical science and potion brewing.

Number of Abilities To Each Title
Apart from what all Witches possess in power Witches also have their own unique abilities which are unique to the user. With ranking comes power. A Witches powers are all interconnected in some form or way. A Witch who possesses an affinity with Luck or Probability will not be seen to have an affinity with Possession.
◘[12]The High Priestess holds twelve abilities this includes the Seven Trials of Hecate as part of those twelve power. The High Priestess also holds Power Bestowal as one of these powers which she takes on after the death of the last High Priestess. the High Priestess holds the power to grant titles and with titles comes power which only the High Priestess can bestow upon certain Witches or even mortals. Power Negation/Nullify is also an ability the High Priestess must include in her list as to give power means she can take power away as well.
◘[10]The High Priest/Elder Acolyte holds ten powers which do not include the full list of the Seven Trials of Hecate only some of the trials as no male has ever been able to complete all Seven Trials. However this does include Power Negation/Nullify. As one who acts in the stead of the High Priestess when one takes on this position the High Priestess bestows this power upon them to prove title.
◘[9]The Acolyte has eight common powers and the power of Summoning. This ability grants them with the knowledge and power to summon all Witches to a circle without warning. Those who ignore the summoning power or block it will be forced into the state of temporary banishment. Temporary banishment removes all connection to other Witches from the one who blocks the summoning. They feel empty inside and their powers become almost entirely drained. It practically paralyzes a Witch's abilities.
◘[9]The Seer/Vice has eight common powers and the power of Vision/The Sight. The ability to see significant visions of the past and future through touch, applies to people and materials in a series of visions or premonitions. Described as the most powerful ability to have and the most painful to live with. The Sight can be manipulated through a series of probability actions and can trick the Seer into believing events have passed when they have not. This spell is called the Sight's Veil. It is very advanced and few can accomplish it fully. The Sight normally can manifest in multiple forms. It usually takes three main forms: Precognition, Retrocognition, & Psychometry...However it has been known to take on even more forms. Note: Any form of perceiving the future, past, or present is part of the Sight for a Seer.
◘[8]An Elder has seven common abilities and Elemental Control over the four elements: Earth, Water, Air, & Fire.
◘WITCHES ONLY[7] MORTALS ONLY[3] Guardian/Secret-keeper who is a Witch has five common abilities and the gift of Tracking and Tracking Evasion. This allows them to cover up any sign that the Coven exist from mortals. Mortal Guardians are bestowed with Tracking and Tracking Evasion as well to cover their own tracks as well as the Covens and track down Witch Hunters. The mortal Guardians have a third ability which is a blessing from the High Priestess. This ability is usually an enhanced ability from their most dominant trait: A person who relies on beauty could hold enhanced beauty or touch of seduction; One who is very empathetic toward others feelings could find themselves being able to control others emotions or calming others with a touch; Someone who is competitive could have luck manipulation or enhanced endurance; etcetera...
◘[5]All Caster's have five common abilities with no true significance to the title.
◘[2]Sleepwalker's have Immortality & Single Animal Shapeshifting against freewill. As they must shift every night into their animal form and have had all of the powers stripped from them with the curse of Immortality
◘[3]Familiar's have Immortality, Single Animal Shapeshifting with some free will, and a Bondage Empathy-Link. Familiar's are bonded to a single Witch and should the Witch die so will the Familiar. Familiar's may shift at will into their animal form, but must also do so at the will of their bonded witch/master.
◘[5-12] A Wraith can be created from the position of any witch. To become a Wraith one must commit the act of murder using their powers to kill another Witch. This can make them unpredictable as they take in up to twelve powers with the ability to become a High Priest or Priestess through time. Few can harness twelve complete powers, but it has happened.
◘[5] A Rogue Witch is a Witch without any ties to a Coven having no membership as a Coven member and without restraint on their powers as they are not Wraiths and do not kill other Witches for power.

Individual Witches
All Witches hold their own individual strengths in power and rank. As stated above a Witches powers are all interconnected in some form or way. A Witch who possesses an affinity with Luck or Probability will not be seen to have an affinity with Possession. And again this is an incomplete list of powers and abilities if you have a power or ability you would like to consider for your character that is not listed request it's approval in the questions topic. If the mods deem it to be inappropriate to the rp it will not be allowed.

Every Witch holds power in a single Element which becomes on of their numbered abilities. This element is predetermined at birth. As with the four elements (Water, Fire, Earth, & Wind) these abilities are linked to emotion and personality characteristics. The Sacred Four Elements are known to link to a persons Zodiac Sign.
◘Earth - Taurus, Virgo, & Capricorn
◘Air - Gemini, Libra, & Aquarius
◘Water - Cancer, Scorpio, & Pisces
◘Fire - Aries, Leo, & Sagittarius

The larger list of abilities also goes with personality and inner linking apart from the inner one of the Sacred Four Elements. This will make up the rest of a Witches powers which will lead them into hierarchy titles one day.
