Ella possesses the ability to manipulate photons. Doing so allows her to control and generate light. With this, Ella is able to produce light from herself, bright enough to blind people, and she can also manipulate exisiting light around herself. She can manipulate light to make a place brighter or to make a place darker, and can even remove all light from a room so that it is pitch black. She can also create light from nothingness which she mostly produces from her hands. Another aspect that Ella has achieved, yet finds difficult, is to bend light around herself to make herself unseen by others. However, she can only manipulate light, not its absence. Ella cannot manipulate the colour of exisiting photons but is able to choose what colour the light will be of what she produces herself. penetrate any type of shield or defensive ability. However Ella has to consciously take in the shield whereas her aunt does not.
