This ability can manipulate the movements of any group of small objects, such as a round of bullets, or a swarm of insects. It can be used to manipulate their movements, and in the case of living things their metabolism and behaviour also, and eventually one can learn to create these small groups too. It can only manipulate them while they remain as a group, and has no effect if they are separated or single. It can't manipulate groups of people or of buildings, these being too large and complex for the ability.
