The most ancient of powers given to the Aldar in the moment of their formation by Ayar, beyond even the innumerable other natural advantages of their race, was their strength in will and mind. This manifested itself in vast psionic and telepathic might, an ability wielded with unfathomable ease as they imposed their thought upon themselves and upon the world around them. With the centuries of peace during which these arts were mastered, coupled to their functionally unchallenged rule of Creation below the Pantheon itself, offensive techniques within Psionics never saw true progress beyond the simple, rendering them almost unrefined by the measure of modern telepaths. Yet it was never their offensive powers that made this lost art so mighty in the hands of the Firstborn. A practitioner of Psionics is the absolute master of his or her body and of the world beyond, exerting such perfect control of muscle, skin, and cell that many of the mental constraints binding mere mortals can be circumvented or even bypassed entirely. Be it the expulsion of mental interference or the forging of psionic projections, where the Will of the Psion exists, they will assuredly always find a Way. Yet even these magnificent - and dangerous - arts paled before the crowning glory of Aldar mental might: the ability to turn the full presence of their minds to contemplation and comprehension of the fabric of time itself, manifesting as inevitable prophecy. Though no mortal lives or ever will live who could approach the Aldar mastery of this psionic pinnacle, the briefest glimpses of possible futures woven into present fact may await those who wholly devote themselves to its study. For on the battlefields of Sapience and beyond, that brief second of forethought, the hint to the enemy's next move, becomes the difference between life and death.
