Water Manipulation

Hydrokinesis is the elemental ability to create, control and manipulate water in liquid state, levitate ice and a jelly-like substance, as well break ice, mold the water in an unlimited variety of shapes, and multiply water molecules, causing liquid to expand, creating even more water. With this ability, merpeople can mold the water in the air at will and take any form that he/she desires, whether it's simple water orbs, a miniature mermaid figurine, giant three-headed snake or a huge wave. They can control the water pressure, hardening water enough to be used as a knife strong enough to slice through solid rock.

Merpeople can fill water with energy, making it strong enough to support heavy weights and solid material which would usually sink into the liquid. They are capable of making geysers of water strong enough to support a teenage boy and they can use water to move objects like boats. Merpeople can take control of pipes, hoses and other forms of plumbing. They can make them turn on and off without turning a tap and they can control the intensity of the water. Cleo often soaked her sister Kim by making water rush out of the sink. Merpeople with this ability may be able to sense or "feel" the water without touching it, sensing its presence and knowing which direction it is going in. Cleo displayed this ability twice. When she was aiding in Miriam's revival, she described using her abilities to make Miriam's bodily fluids move as feeling "weird". When Hector was trapped in the drains in a bubble of Moon Pool water, she could sense where his bubble was and which direction it was going.

One of the most extraordinary uses of hydrokinesis was seen in the episode "Turn the Tide". Merpeople can fill a ball with magic, granting it a degree of sentience and allowing it to float and fly with great speed without the mermaid or merman having to focus on it to keep it afloat. This is often used to sharpen a merperson's reflexes.

The hand movement for this power is a free flowing hand between a rigid hand and balled-up fist. This may represent the state of water in between frozen and boiled. It may also represent the flowing movements of water and the movement of water molecules in the liquid state. If a mermaid or merman with this power is in the Moon Pool during a special planetary alignment on a Full Moon, it could be enhanced to Aerokinesis.
