Empathy is the ability to feel and understand other people's feelings, emotions, and desires. A user of this ability can feel exactly what another person is feeling, and for the same reasons, without direct contact with them.

Empathy is a rare gift and can only be handled by beings that are meant to have the power. When others gain this power, it will eventually overwhelm them, which can drive them insane and even kill them.

Description Edit

The most basic level of empathy involves feeling what other people are feeling, either automatically or by focusing on them. Often times, users can immediately interpret the reason or truth behind the emotions, thereby gaining some insight into what others are thinking, physically feeling (touch, pain, medical effect, etc) or their desires.
