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). Her powers seem to be at least partially affected by her emotions, as seen 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 them as a sphere of darkness 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 are able to affect the abilities of other evos, nullifying their effects and affecting their use. She has so far made a levitating guitarist fall, extinguished a pyrokinetic's fire, prevented Malina from using her powers, and stopped Miko from entering Evernow. When stopping abilities from working, she actively projects darkness, generating tendrils of shadow from her hands to negate the power she wishes to disrupt. (Dark Matters, Part 3, The Lion's Den, Game Over) It appears that she has developed this aspect of her power mostly under Renautas' employment.

The shadows she produces also seem capable of making physical contact with objects, being able to hold down her brother's gun hand and also causing bleeding and fatal injuries when forced into his mouth. (Game Over) Her ability also seems to disrupt electrical systems, as seen when she shuts down the lights in a lecture theater, blows out a light when arguing with her brother, and causes multiples computer screens and fluorescent lights to flicker when entering a room. (Dark Matters, Part 3, Game Over)

When using her powers actively, Phoebe's eyes change colour. Initially, they glowed purple; when working for Renautas as "The Shadow", rings of glowing iridescence would form around her irides. (Dark Matters, Part 3, Game Over)

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.
