Powers and Abilities

Using the boon transformed Gilad Anni-Padda, once the transformation ended his mind, soul, spirit, body and very existence were permanently altered, granting him the following abilities

  • Immortality: The soul is made invincible, forcing them to live out their existence forever. Immortality unties the soul from the physical body, which is just recreated as necessary, although the subject still retains all bodily sensations and functions. In this sense one is separated from the cycle of life and death, rendering their existence to be completely independent from the concepts of reality, granting them complete and perfect immortality.
