Feel the rhythm of the Earth, and the whispers of the wind.

All right, focus really hard...

Can you hear it?

No? Try again...

Well, these guys can. They claim they can hear the rhythm of the world that people act in accordance to (although apparently, every person has a different rhythm) and by which everything happens in this life. This type of character is often concerned with conserving nature, and say they can tell someone's personality by the rhythm they move to.

Also covers poems/songs/whatever on this theme or subject.

In fighting games, Dance Battle characters often say can feel this as part of their strategy.

Probably Needs a Better Description. Also, Up for Grabs.
