Telekinesis is a skill that elves use to move around any object with the power of their mind.
Every elf (including Talentless) can use telekinesis because it is a skill, not a special ability. However, some elves (like Sophie when she first was learning to use this skill) are not very good at it. It is practiced in Physical Education at Foxfire using a game called Splotching.
Telekinesis usually uses core energy as a source of its strength, but highly trained Telepaths can use mental energy to fuel telekinesis as well. Mental energy is stronger than core energy and can be used for greater amounts of time without exhaustion. Mental energy and core energy do not mix and can result in somewhat explosive results as seen during the Splotching match between Sophie and Fitz, where Fitz using core energy and Sophie using mental energy (in the form of a brain push) in the game sent both of them to Elwin at the Healing Center.
Full Body Momentum[edit | edit source]
Full Body Momentum (also nicknamed foot energy by Keefe) is a method that some elves, especially Neverseen members, use to use telekinesis more powerfully. This is achieved when one uses their foot energy to boost their telekinesis. This can be achieved by small movements of the feet, such as stepping or wiggling one's toes. It is often overlooked, as Elves tend to use their hands more. Alvar taught it to Keefe in Book 5: Lodestar, and Keefe taught it to Sophie in Book 7: Flashback.
Using this skill, Sophie managed to not just smash one vial, but bring all the vials in the Healing Center off of the shelves, crashing to the ground, though she caught them with telekinesis. ==References==
