Trick another into believing they are petrifying
- "He can trick another into believing they are petrifying, turning to solid stone"
- ―A target on Ishtvan's gift
- "A sharp presence surrounded me, and then something hit me. It was like I was being punched all over my body, and it hurt, in all of a second, I couldn't move. I gasped in horror, and then my mouth didn't close again, what was happening"
- -One of Ishtvan's targets
When the effects of Ishtvan's power begins, his targets feel a strong pressure against them, like they are being punched all over their body, in that instant, they are stuck in their nimble movements and they cannot move, if they gasp or try to speak, these processes are stuck as well
Ishtvan can't affect metal shields, as the gift is only mental. his power only affects one person at a time, so this would render him vulnerable against several enemies.
Alec is able to icapacitate his targets by taking away their senses
