Prick: The power of inspiration and individual style; an awakening from a state of memory and immersion in universal being, into individual action and thought. The power can be used as individual defence (as in a thistle) or as the awakening (and awareness of surroundings) it creates (such as in a person pricked by a thistle.) In the sense of being pricked, individual style is a gift given by interaction with external forces. It retains their energy.
