This article contains plot details from the latest books.
Special Abilities are extensions of the Elves' natural powers; they are only available to those Elves who have DNA with the necessary components and then manifest them.
It is quite rare for an elf to have more than one special ability, though there are a few of these mentioned in the series. Polyglots are more likely to have multiple abilities than any other manifesters.
There are currently 24 abilities that have been mentioned in the series. All of them are associated at least one character, although the character may be nameless. Keefe may get a completely new ability.
