A Minimum is a unique abillity, possessed by a small percentage of the population. Those who possess a Minimum are called Minimum Holders.
Minimums manifest themselves in a wide array of different forms, such as control over electricity, extreme speed, and healing. They also have a variety of triggers, ranging from removing glasses to three months of silence.
Minimums are discovered to be the manifestation of a person's drive (or "ego"). It is possible, under extreme circumstances, to project this ego onto others and give them a Minimum ability.
Minimum holders begin to experience negative side effects of using their Minimums after spending a lot of time around the holder of the Nihilist Minimum.
