"As you are aware, there are individuals who possess supernatural powers. ... There are five classifications of supernatural powers, and a myriad of abilities that fall into these categories. These abilities present at varying intensities in a percentage of the population, though a much smaller percentage have abilities strong enough that they are aware of and have the potential to control their abilities."

Very little, is any, of this information is necessary to read/enjoy the story. But I since I spent way too much time compiling this, I figured I might as well share it. I also have a list that details which heroes/shinigamis have which powers, but it would contain spoilers for later in the series. However, I will be posting character bios for characters as of the start of the story, and this will include supernatural abilities.
