This ability allows a person to sense the desires of others, and to alter them - changing the desire, and weakening or strengthening it. These desires include attraction, adoration and love towards others, addictions, and plans and hopes for the future. One can also create realistic illusions of desires. However, the ability cannot grant real fulfilment of a desire and these illusions will be broken if the person realises that it is not real. The person with the ability can also be potentially overwhelmed with what they sense, but this occurance seems to be rare.
