Ability versus techniqueEdit

Sometimes confused with Yoma power, agility, strength, mental and sensing techniques, which can be learned.

Innate ability differs from learned technique in that "innate" means being "born with it." Though innate talent gives rise to technique, once a technique is established, that technique can be learned by others with different personalities (type), talents (ability) and skills (technique).

ClareEdit

Clare is an exception in that she has Teresa's flesh implanted. And Ilena's arm.[3] Clare's Preemptive Sensing is much weaker than Teresa's, however. Clare does use her sensing to make up for her low mental baseline, when using Quicksword.[4]

TypeEdit

The Yoma War Record differentiates ability from technique, further dividing innate ability among three combat personalities or types.

BaselineEdit

Types and abilities arise from the six baselines.
