gain strength from various potent emotions around oneself

Empathic vampirism is the ability to gain strength from the potent emotions of other people around oneself.

Characters

Limits

Lily Bishop

Lily gains strength from positive emotions around her, such as happiness, peacefulness or hope. The strength she can gain is comparable to enhanced strength. Lily can only gain strength from the emotions of others around her, not from her own. However, it is unknown if Lily can consciously suppress this ability and prevent herself from becoming stronger. The ability shows some similarity to her father's ability to empathically absorb the abilities of others, as both abilities show an empathic aspect.

Jacob Bishop

Jacob gains strength from negative emotions, such as fear, pain, hatred or sadness. The strength he can gain is comparable to enhanced strength. There is often positive feedback with this ability, as seeing this display of strength can induce fear in others which then strengthen him further. Like Lily, he too cannot gain strength from his own emotions, and it is unknown whether he can suppress the ability. Again like his sister, Jacob's ability is also empathic and derived from their father's ability.

Peter Petrelli

Since he mimicked the ability from both Lily and Jacob, Peter can gain strength from either positive or negative emotions. He would however gain more strength from negative emotions, because of the positive feedback involved and because he has also mimicked phobic vampirism. Again, the strength is comparable to enhanced strength.

Robert Max

Since he mimicked the ability from both Lily and Jacob, Robert can gain strength from either positive or negative emotions. He would gain more strength from negative emotions, because of the positive feedback involved and because he has also mimicked phobic vampirism. Again, the strength is comparable to enhanced strength.

Jessica Sky Petrelli

Jess can currently gain strength from both positive and negative emotions, though she cannot gain as much strength as her father or uncle, since unlike them she doesn't also have phobic vampirism or enhanced strength, and she thus doesn't experience as much positive feedback from fear. She also cannot become as strong as they can since she is much smaller and weaker to begin with.

Kaylyn Parkman

Kaylyn's ability will be derived from the empathic aspect of her mother's ability, as well as her father's enhanced strength. It will also be an ability shared by two of her second cousins. Like her second cousin Lily, she will grow stronger from positive emotions surrounding her, like happiness or hope. She will be unable to gain strength from her own emotions. If the circumstances are right, she could gain as much strength as given by enhanced strength.
