- Fear. An unpleasant emotion caused by the belief that someone or something is dangerous, likely to cause pain, or a threat. What exactly would one do, if they were their own worst nightmare?
Real name: Shim Changmin
Alignment: Formerly Heroes, Neutral
Powers: Fitting the tragic story he unfolds, Changmin was seemingly born with the frightening ability to control the primal emotion of fear. The way he discovered this ability, it’s no surprise his superhuman gene reacted the way it did to grant him this gift. By simply concentrating on a person, Changmin is able to make the person feel a sense of fright and succumb to fear on any number of levels. While a simple stare from Changmin can invoke this feeling with ease, it’s noted that his power has a greater effect when contact is made with another person.
His ability targets the person’s brain and causes it to release large amounts of fear-inducing chemicals that render the person frightened. The victim’s perception is altered and they are manipulated to see objects or events that they are fearful of. This image ranges from any number of fears; from ominous darkness blinding their vision, to crawling spiders covering the walls, to writhing snakes pooling around their ankles. This type of fear is simple for Changmin to produce since it requires him to affect only a few senses.
For the more extreme fears, Changmin would require a longer amount of time to slip his control over a person, whether it be longer concentration or longer contact of touch. With this more energy put into his control, he is able to bring out a person’s worst fears, no matter what they could be. He could manipulate a person in a library to suddenly fall into the deep, dark water of an ocean, surrounded by deadly sharks ready to devour them. Or he could make a driver suddenly feel the fright of falling from atop the world’s tallest skyscraper.
With enough practice, Changmin could potentially manipulate a person to feel frightful of something they weren’t scared of originally. He could make a person feel frightened of a piece of marshmallow on a counter to the extent that they would run away from it. This ability is still being trained and would require a bit more time to perfect if Changmin would wish to use it. These illusions Changmin creates are still only mere illusions, but with the way they affect a person’s senses, they could leave a lasting impression on a person with enough time.
If Changmin was to use his ability on a group of people, then each victim would see a different fear depending on what they are fearful of. Each individual would struggle as they battled his or her own fears, completely independant from each other’s fear. His ability seems to also work on animals and other organic lifeforms since they respond just as much as humans do to his fear. In the wild, animals would not prove dangerous to Changmin since his abilities would keep all of them at bay.
An amazing ability Changmin seems to have under his belt is the ability to give off a sort of frightening presence. By simply evoking his fear abilities in the space around him, he can cause people to run away from him if they were to feel his presence coming. With enough fear, Changmin could paralyze a person in their place, rendering them incapable of moving. Their mind would still be running erratic, eyeballs moving frantically, but their body would not respond. Sweat would fall down their faces as they tried to run away, but the paralysis would be too great.
If someone was to feel too frightened by an illusion Changmin creates, it is possible that they could be killed if they were to get a heart attack. Giving Changmin’s history, this scenario is highly probable, so any form of contact made with his illusions is considered dangerous and should be treated as a life or death situation. Unsurprisingly, Changmin himself is immune to the emotion of fear and does not feel fear from any known presence. He has stated that he is able to feel a person’s fear, almost like a fear radar in a sense.
Later on, it was discovered that Changmin’s ability to control fear was just a mere fraction of the immense power he holds within him. He has shown the ability to create three-dimensional images of certain visual concepts from thoughts and emotional presences in a person’s mind. These illusions no longer held just the emotion of fear, but could also be drawn from a person’s deepest desires. With the same control he would original use for fear, he would dig into a person’s subconcious and draw out their heart’s desire.
The desires Changmin invokes are usually shallow wants such as the desire of wealth, popularity, or even beauty. With certain people the desires usually turn quite, erotic, and are quite vigorous in execution. These fantasies provide Changmin with a substantial amount of entertainment, and are seen just as much as the fears. Changmin has revealed that he has used his ability on himself before, but the images he saw drove him quite depressed. His ability can also draw from the desire to be reuinted with a person the victim has lost, and this has been the cause of many sad moments.
These fantasies that Changmin can create can only be seen by the person being controlled, and the controller himself. However, the victim would not be aware of Changmin’s presence, as if they were in a glass box and Changmin was watching from outside. Obviously this has provided a bit of awkwardness in Changmin’s usage of the ability, but with the mastery he has made of it, the victim would be unaware since it affects all of their senses, including touch. It is unknown if Changmin can tap into any other emotion for his ability, but it is imperative we track him down.
