Special Abilities (Kingdoms and Thorn)
Special abilities refer to powers and abilities outside the norm for humans. There's a saying that each is unique as a fingerprint. Despite the fact that many abilities manifest with similar, sometimes even identical, results, the underlying mechanisms of each ability differs to some degree in each individual special-type human.
Similar to an elemental but not identical, sensitive is a blanket bucket that covers those sensitive to and able to control particular categories of energy or matter, particular in the case of low level abilities that affect or manipulate those categories without directly generating or controlling them.
