I am currently trying to write a series about monster hunting teenagers set in a world rife with schizo tech, magitek and anachronisms. There are three main characters; one is essentially a ninja, the other two are a couple - the girl is the adventurous type whilst her boyfriend is much more timid.
I have been struggling for a while to come up with abilities/tools for the two. For the girl, Aria, I am looking for something that makes her powerful but not necessarily super strength, more something that comes from within herself that means that she doesn't have to rely on others.
For the guy, Theo, I am looking for something less direct. He's never been the violent type and isn't really proficient with any weapons or anything like that. He's more of a strategist but at the same time he needs something to defend himself with.
I have come up with a few ideas:
Stasis gun (essentially freezes people in time but requires expensive ammunition)
Reality altering gauntlets (limited in range and need equivalent matter to create)
Bubble gun (fires explosive bubbles, poor range but good for strategic placement)
Probability manipulation (create a strategy and then make it more or less likely to work out with the flip of a coin)
