    Possible Uses Of Voodoo

    Post by Wayward Daughter on Fri 28 Jul 2017 - 21:33

    Do you think this ability could be used positively at all? For example, if you made a doll of someone who had a broken leg, and then wrapped the leg up as if it was bandaged, could that help the broken bone heal more easily? Or if it purely negative/injury inflicting?

    good question. i've never really thought about it, but maybe it could be used for healing properties. maybe if regen blood was put onto the vodoo doll it could be used to heal.

    or possibly help to fight, by controlling a person's movements?

    Fighting like how it's used in Stardust? That'd be cool. Good idea Smile Maybe then it could also tap into the person's fighting skills and maybe even their abilities?

    I don't think you'd need to use regen blood to enable the doll to heal, if it would be at all possible. It's not like you need anything extra to inflict injuries - I was just thinking reversing that and doing the opposite.

    As I remember, the witch uses it to animate Septimus' corpse and force him to fight for her in the finale bit Nod

    Think it could also be used to tap into people's powers? Or would that be overkill?

    Doyle could definitely tap into abilities, including in some scenarios which didn't really make sense because there was an emotional aspect as well as the physical motion which he could block or force someone to make. He made Emma play the cello and draw a crowd to the Carnival, remember?

    Actually, I think it'd be more realistic to have voodoo also tapping into emotion/mental controlled abilities than puppetry Nod But maybe make it a rarer/harder use of the ability, to limit it.

    We actually had a thread here, ages ago, arguing over how Doyle shouldn't have been able to control Emma that way.

    yeah, i find it weird that he was able to. But Heroes did over stretch the limits of people's powers. Matt's telepathy/precognition for example Razz

    Matt's was brilliantly ridiculous Laughing It was so obvious that they wanted to retain precognitive paintings for story foreshadowing purposes, but either couldn't be arsed to introduce another new character or thought another new character wouldn't be as popular.
