There are the super common powers, like Healing Stormers, which are, as Jake so snarkily quips at Vincent in book one, “a dime a dozen.” Then there are the exceptionally rare types, such as Time Stoppage and Creation.
But then we also have a few that are in the middle, they’re not filling the stormer population, but they also aren’t so rare you have to search long and hard for them. These are the powers that, combined, make up around ten percent of the stormer population. There are always a few of these stormers milling about, but there aren’t great swaths of them. I’m talking about Seeing, Manipulation, Wind, and Flying Stormers.
Let’s dig into what makes these somewhat rare stormers tick, what drives them, and which stormer types they are most and least compatible with.
Seeing Stormers are hopeless romantics. They are motivated primarily by love.
Seeing Stormers, like Fire Stormers, are also driven by a sense of purpose. They want to leave an impact on the world. However, Seeing Stormers will always put their quest for love first and once they light a torch for another person, that flame is usually lit for good. This means that Seeing Stormers who fall for chaotic evil types can be persuaded to do great evil.
Fatima is an example of a Seeing Stormer who has put their sense of “right” aside. She loves Jake, and he has become the purpose that drives her. Before her time travel, Fatima was studying to become a social worker, but she put her morals aside to pursue a relationship with Jake.
Seeing Stormers who ignore their own values find themselves in a terrible state of inner conflict. Because the infamous “Seer’s Obsession” is so strong, the Seeing Stormer will not give up their quest for love, even when dealing with such strong feelings of guilt and shame. It was mentioned towards the end of book one that rates of suicide are high among Seeing Stormers and this is why. Because Seers bond with the darkest of hearts, existential dread and suicide are the fate of the Seeing Stormer more often than naught.
Seeing Stormers love to laugh and have a great sense of humor.
They are neither alpha nor beta. They can act as leaders when the situation calls for it, but do not actively seek out leadership positions.
Seeing Stormers can be either male or female, with neither gender dominating. They do tend to be on the younger side, with Vincent being one of the oldest Seeing Stormers at twenty-eight years old.
Seeing Stormers are most compatible with Flying Stormers and Water Stormers. They are least compatible with Fire Stormers.
Even though Fire Stormers are the least compatible with Seeing Stormers, Seeing Stormers fall in love with them quite often. They are drawn to Fire Stormers, despite the fact that their personalities and values do not mesh well.
Manipulation Stormers share a good deal of qualities with Fire Stormers. However, they are less ruled by their emotions, and they don’t wear their emotions openly. Like Speaking Stormers they tend to keep their cards hidden.
Manipulation Stormers are driven by the urge to control and influence others. They are often good at influencing other people and getting their way.
Their personalities are usually quite Machiavellian. They are cunning and sly and wonderful at turning the words of others against them. Like Fire Stormers, they often have a strong urge to “watch the world burn.”
They tend to have more of an alpha personality type, but this isn’t always recognized, as they are ‘behind the scenes’ types of leaders. They’d prefer to have someone else address the people while they run the show from the background. They have no urge for recognition or greatness, as Fire Stormers do. They simply want to pull the strings and it doesn’t matter to them if they get credit for it.
Like Flying Stormers, they are very mischievous and will often ruffle feathers and mess with people just for the fun of it. Although, their jokes and schemes are usually much more mean-spirited and harmful than the pranks of the more kind-hearted Flying Stormers.
Manipulation Stormers have few close friends. They are true loners, despite the fact that they are adept at reading other people. They simply aren’t interested in forming close attachments to others.
There is no gender distinction or age distinction in Manipulation Stormers. They come in all genders and ages.
Manipulation Stormers are most compatible with Seeing Stormers and Healing Stormers. They are least compatible with Fire Stormers and other Manipulation Stormers.
Wind Stormers Share many traits with Flying Stormers. They are energetic, enthusiastic, and they love to make new friends and have new experiences.
Wind Stormers differ from Flying Stormers in how they display their emotions. Wind Stormers are expressive and open, much like Fire and Healing Stormers, whereas Flying Stormers are somewhat more reserved (although not to the extent of the very reserved Speaking and Manipulation Stormers).
Wind Stormers’ strongest motivators are friendship and entertainment. The Wind Stormer is not concerned with artistic expression or creation, as Creation and Flying Stormers are. Wind Stormers don’t create, they consume, but they have great taste. The Wind Stormer will always be able to recommend the best books, best movies, or best video games. Their tastes lean more towards the light and humorous. A Wind Stormer is unlikely to ever recommend a tearjerker. They don’t like sad endings.
Wind Stormers love to have fun and rarely sit still.
Wind Stormers are helpful, spirited, and somewhat altruistic (although less altruistic than Water Stormers).
They fall into the beta personality type and are uncomfortable in a position of leadership.
Wind Stormers, like Fire and Healing Stormers, are great at solving problems.
Wind Stormers tend to be extroverts with high energy. They also tend to be children under the age of fifteen.
Wind Stormers are primarily male.
Wind Stormers are most compatible with Flying Stormers and other Wind Stormers. They are least compatible with Healing Stormers and Manipulation Stormers.
Flying Stormers share all of the enthusiasm and friendliness of Wind Stormers, but they don’t always display their emotions openly. They are less reserved than Speaking Stormers and they don’t keep their emotions hidden on purpose. It’s just that they often need time to process how they are feeling.
Flying Stormers are social, but introverted. They aren’t shy, but they do need time to themselves to recharge.
Flying Stormers are trouble-makers. They like to stir the pot. But they usually aren’t too mean when ruffling feathers. They’re just as mischievous as Manipulation Stormers, but they couldn’t ever bring themselves to do anyone else serious harm. They try to keep everyone in on the joke.
Speaking of jokes, Flying Stormers have an excellent sense of humor. They are quick-witted and clever, able to come up with funny retorts on the fly.
Flying Stormers are selfless and altruistic individuals. They highly value family, but their friends can become like family to them. Flying Stormers keep a large circle and can have a significant number of close friends. Flying Stormers are excellent companions, because they are good listeners and truly concerned with the well-being of others.
Flying Stormers have a great deal of empathy, although they aren’t great at reading people. Flying Stormers trust too easily and this can get them into trouble.
Flying Stormers are easy-going, but this can also cause them problems, as they don’t tend to plan or prepare. They are ‘go with the flow’ individuals. In order for them to plan, it has to be something they truly care about.
Despite how easy-going they are, Flying Stormers have a confidence and charisma that makes them great leaders. They fall into neither the alpha or beta personality type, but they are comfortable leading when the situation calls for it.
Flying Stormers are not easily stressed. They have a high level of emotional intelligence and are able to regulate their own emotions skillfully.
Flying Stormers have a thirst for adventure and actively seek out new experiences. They usually like to travel. They are sometimes adrenaline junkies, enjoying activities such as bungee-jumping or riding roller coasters.
Flying Stormers are creative. Their creative pursuits tend to be aesthetic. They are more likely to be painters or fashion designers than writers or engineers. They adore beauty and seek to create it in all that they do. This means the Flying Stormer is a sharp dresser, with a keen eye for color and style, but being as kind and sociable as they are, Flying Stormers never judge those who are less stylish than them.
Flying Stormers are primarily female. Flying Stormers come in all ages.
Flying Stormers are most compatible with Healing Stormers and Wind Stormers. They are least compatible with Fire Stormers.
