A guess for Stan’s knack

myimaginedairybeard asked:

Is the other character with the emotional manipulation knack Stan Baker? Please tell me that I’m wrong, cuz if not I swear that this is some kind of sick joke. All this time brainwashed as a pet… Did his knack backfire on him? Like, does he believe it so much that he subconsciously manipulates himself? Does that even make sense??

We are pleased to announce that you are indeed wrong!

In Brothers Chosen, borrower Stan was manipulated and abused, but not by his own knack. That would be an extremely sad way for him to get stuck thinking that way, but the good news is a person with emotional manipulation probably wouldn’t be able to manipulate themselves in the way you described.

@nightmares06

Stan’s knack is not emotional manipulation, but it is a form of manipulation. So you have half of the answer for this one!

When it comes to knacks that allow borrowers to manipulate others, they rarely work on other borrowers or themselves. Though a few of the borrowers with emotional manipulation are able to affect their own kind, the angel Grace that’s in them gives them a stronger resistance to it compared to humans.
