Season 1Edit


Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Taryn possesses very strong, powerful psychic powers and abilities and because of this, she often becomes extremely overwhelmed by the actual strength and intensity of her own powers. Because of this, Taryn frequently tries to suppress the true extent of the power and strength of her abilities as much as she can, but unfortunately, she doesn't have much success. Because Taryn's powers are so overwhelmingly intense, this has caused Taryn to pass out, faint or become unconscious many times throughout the series. Although, as the series progresses, Taryn learns to control her psychic abilities all by herself without any help from anyone else. Taryn puts these special psychic powers to use whenever she is doing something highly purposeful and useful and she often uses her powers to help her friends. Here is a list of Taryn's powers:

  • Clairvoyance: The ability to gain information about an object, person, location or physical event through means other than the known human senses.
  • Telepathy: The ability to read other people's minds and hear their thoughts.
  • Empathy: The ability to identify the emotional feelings of another person.
  • Intuition: The ability to have an innate sense of events, thoughts, and even the feelings of others that are normally outside of what the normal human ability is capable of perceiving.
  • Aura Reading: The ability to perceive all of the energy fields surrounding various people, places and things.
  • Palm Reading: The ability to tell fortunes by reading the lines on a persons hand.
  • Telekinesis: The ability to move objects with the mind.
  • Astral Projection: The ability to project the spiritual body of a person to another area in the world.
