Limits

Phoebe first began experimenting with her ability by playing with her shadows and making them move independently of her (Dark Matters, Part 1). She also plays harmless tricks on others, like when she turned off the lights on a South Western College professor. As she grew stronger, her ability sometimes worked without her active concentration, like when shadows crept along a wall as she experienced a nightmare (Dark Matters, Part 3). Sometimes her abilities echoed her emotions, like when she accidentally blew out a light when she was angry with her brother (Dark Matters, Part 3).

Phoebe eventually grew strong enough to the point that she could gather shadows from her surroundings and hold it in her hands. In fact, when Quentin saw an eclipse on June 13, 2014, he automatically assumed it was caused by Phoebe's ability (Dark Matters, Part 4).

Phoebe's abilities seem to be able to affect the abilities of other evos, nullifying them. She has so far made a levitating guitarist fall, extinguished a pyrokinetic's fire, and prevented Malina from using her powers. When doing so, she actively projects darkness, and in the last case generates tendrils of shadow from her hands to negate the power. (Dark Matters, Part 3, The Lion's Den)

When using her powers actively, Phoebe's eyes turn purple.

Selected Examples

Trivia

  • On her Instagram page, actress Aislinn Paul said that to create the effect of her holding the ball of light and shadow in The Needs of the Many, the effects team put lights inside her sleeves so they could use a mix of practical and digital effects.
