The Alternate may create fatal chaos in crowded locales.

Pathokinesis (also called Emokinesis or Emotion Manipulation) is the ability of a DNA Alternate to consciously control their own pheromone production to manipulate the emotions of others. Pheromones are chemical signals that trigger a natural response in another member of the same species. There are different pheromones for different situations, such as alarm pheromones and sex pheromones.

This ability is restricted to affecting only human or Alternate victims. The Alternate could induce panic, euphoria, rage, depression, or arousal in victims. Alternates with empathy will be dangerously vulnerable to Alternates with pathokinesis. The Alternate may also detect the presence of pheromones released by victims.
