Alter is a power found within those born on the island known as the Lost Ground. It is the ability to telekinetically breakdown matter, granting the user the ability to deconstruct, reshape, and crystallize matter at a molecular level using only thought and willpower.
A power that organisms can achieve and use to manipulate molecular reality in some way. The ability to use Alter power can be present from birth or attained after one has seen "the other side". The form Alter power takes differs between different organisms and can be upgraded through training and experience to the highest form of shining light and armor.
An Alter can come in the form of an independent body such as Fang's Frosted Tundra, an element such as water or blizzard, an intangible power such as telepathy, or a weapon such as Setsuna's Eternity Eight.
However, matter must be processed in order to use the energy or resources to crystallize or create the Alter. Often, Alter users will take small chunks out of the surrounding environment to use as matter to form their Alter. The Alter user can control what matter will be used to attain the Alter.
- Z-Class: Typically Solidified "Alter" energy, in a corporeal form, Z-Class alters have boundless energy and are not of the material world, originating from the "other side".
- Artificial Z-Class: Refined S-Class or even an A-Class alter user. These are alters who have been forcibly upgraded and as a result their powers are degraded, more so over a certain amount of time. Those who have been refined from an S-Class have about 6 Years at which they benefit from the procedure, however they are stuck within a modified and heavily mutated form of their final form; A-Classes have it worse as they only have 3 years at the same result. Typically, those who are refined die after their alters fully degrade.
- S-Class: The top tier of most earth born Alter users, this level is the pinnacle of the alter power and those born in this ranking have a natural affinity to accessing all three forms of Alter power. They are said to have a higher wave length with the other side however they are quite rare.
