Shaker is one of the twelve power classifications created by the PRT still in modern day use.[1] Shakers are parahumans that can affect a broader area, asserting some degree of control over the battlefield.[2]

MethodologyEdit

Shakers use their abilities to control the battlefield.[2] They use several methods to accomplish this, including, but not limited to:

  • The creation and manipulation of forcefields in a variety of shapes and sizes.[2]
  • Blasts with an area of effect, combining Shaker powers with a Blaster rating, similar to the old Nuker classification.[3]
  • The manipulation of terrain, hampering the mobility of enemy forces.[4][5]
  • The use of auras, either aiding allies or debilitating enemies.[6]
  • The use of different forms of telekinesis.[7][8]
  • The creation of environmental hazards, such as gasses and explosions.[2]

Trigger eventsEdit

Trigger events producing Shakers often involve some sort of environmental or ambient danger, often non-human or only abstractly human.[9]

Common combinations with other ratingsEdit

[Coming soon]

PRT countermeasuresEdit

The PRT's general response is to spread out, minimizing the Shaker’s ability to affect multiple individuals at once.[2]

Threat level Additional measures
2+
  • The team is notified of a Shaker classification.[2]
  • Where possible, the fight's location should be changed with some regularity, to slow the enemy's ability to control the a battlefield.[2]
  • The Shaker should be considered a high priority threat, and should be baited out and taken out of action.[2]
5+
  • All individuals should remain as mobile as possible, operating alone or in pairs.[2]
  • The area should be evacuated, personnel are warned not to rely too much on cover, environmental advantages, or situational advantages.[2]
  • Confrontations should be drawn out, leaving an area when identified.[2]
9+
  • Evacuation takes utmost priority.[2]

  3. Sarcophagus #U0402 Alexandria-ish package grants flight, as well as protection, in the form of external armor or a forcefield, the former providing imperfect but substantial protection that decays as it absorbs several incoming attacks, the latter providing perfect protection against a single hit.  Both forms of protection recover after a short pause.  Sarcophagus grants a blaster power with shaker-esque radius and damage potential or a shaker power with blaster-like offensive potential, the indistinction closely fitting the original PRT ‘Nuker’ designation).  Nature of armor, recovery period, style of flight, and the nature or flavor of the ‘nuke’ vary based on the individual. - Detail Generator - Vials, spreadsheet by Wildbow.
  4. Conch - Effect ripples outward, forcing enemies away, while having a supercharged aura-like effect imbue any allies in the area, granting a beneficial effect for the duration. Has a cost to use. - Detail Generator - LIST, spreadsheet by Wildbow.
  5. Quicksand - Fill an area with elementally charged muck. Movement through area is limited and causes damage to others, staying still lets slowing effect stack up to a limit, making moving again hard, while accumulating to affect them with elemental effect. - Detail Generator - LIST, spreadsheet by Wildbow.
  6. 6.0 6.1 Question by WyldCard4: Aura: What exactly is her aura classified as? Personally I have classified it as a low level Stranger power, as I believe you once told me it is not a Master power. Stranger seems to fit best, as it alters the perceptions of her enemies.

    Answer by Wildbow: Shaker, not stranger. - Spacebattles post by Wildbow.

  9. Shaker (Wide area effects) - Environmental danger, ambient danger, often nonhuman or only abstractly human. - Weaver Dice: Rulebook (Old Version)
  10. 10.0 10.1 “I’m a breaker and shaker,” Annex told me, “Merge into nonliving material, warp space.”

    “Warp it how?” I asked.

    “Reshape it,” he said. He was still half-walking, half-jogging, but he stretched a white-gloved hand out four feet, touching a sign. His hand smeared against it as though it were more liquid than solid, coloring it the same white as his glove. The sign oozed back into the wall, virtually disappearing, and Annex removed his hand, slowly reeling in the extended flesh. The sign remained where it was, compressed against the wall, the surface flat. - Excerpt from Crushed 24.1
  11. Rime explained. “She’s a social thinker, in addition to her minor blaster and shaker powers. Her danger sense is mild at best, not something she can react to immediately, but it makes her aware of associated individuals and the threat they pose. She wouldn’t be able to see much from Pretender alone, but she knows that there’s a moderate to high danger posed by those closest to him-” - Excerpt from Drone 23.2
  12. Six more capes made their way down the line. Arbiter used her forcefield to block some more agitated capes from making their way down before it was time. She spoke in one of the local languages to the group. - Excerpt from Crushed 24.3
  13. ◈ AUROCH; Charley nCothra
    Classification: Brute 2, Shaker 3, Striker 2, Mover 2.
    Inertial alteration effect in an area, somewhat selective, inverse effect for self. Disrupts energy. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  14. Auroch generates an effect around her that either dampens inertia, protecting and slowing things in the area, or accelerating them to prompt faster, less controlled movement. Can affect herself independently of the general effect, with some benefits of a dampening effect alongside the benefits of acceleration, justifying her Brute, Striker and Mover classifications. Machinery tends to fail or work intermittently within the field. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  15. 15.0 15.1 “Focus,” Prefab said. “We know who these three are. We’ve got a Mover-shaker six, a blaster-shaker four, and a master-stranger three.” - Excerpt from Drone 23.2
  16. 16.0 16.1 If the Prince was the master-stranger hybrid, and Bambina the mover-shaker, then that left the blaster power to Starlet. - Excerpt from Drone 23.2
  17. The shooter wasn’t in my reach. Bambina was horrifically mobile, bouncing off of walls and the street, creating explosions with most of the impacts. Her teammates were along for the ride, apparently unscathed by her power. Going on the offensive would be hard, even if I was using my full complement of bugs. - Excerpt from Drone 23.2
  18. 18.0 18.1 I put the folder away carefully, picked out another. Lost Garden. High threat level, low crime rate, low engagement level and moderate activity level. Leader, Barrow. A powerful shaker, similar to Labyrinth, only rather more single-minded in what he did. He couldn’t leave the altered area he created around him, only extending it slowly to an area while letting it fade behind him, an effect described as ‘a depression’ with overgrowth extending into the surrounding neighborhood. Tattletale’s own notes in the file suggested he was making slow but steady progress towards Brockton Bay, and that he had been since the portal appeared. - Excerpt from Imago 21.7
  19. 19.0 19.1 19.2 19.3 19.4 19.5 19.6 19.7 Shaker.

    All capes ‘break’ physics to some extent. Breakers break the rules as the rules pertain to them (and maybe their immediate surroundings/possessions).

    Grue, Labyrinth, Shatterbird, Lady Photon/Laserdream/Shaker, Fog, Stormtiger, Cricket, Rune, Burnscar, Narwhal and Skidmark are shakers. You might be able to divine the common theme, there. - Queen 18.5, comment by Wildbow.
  20. Burnscar (Deceased) – A pyrokinetic with the ability to teleport through flames. A onetime acquaintance of Labyrinth from Faultline’s crew, Burnscar has a mental side effect with her powers that make her more emotionally detached as she uses her power more. A young woman with a penchant for wearing red, she had cigarette burns dotting her cheeks and dark hair. Slain while fighting in Brockton Bay. - Cast (In Depth)
  21. 21.0 21.1 ➥ CADENCE; Real name unknown
    Disposition: Villain (B)
    Last known location: Anchorage
    Cadence is a subordinate in the Anchorage faction of Tuurngait. Apparent crimes include robbery and assault. Cadence is a Shaker capable of utilizing vibrations to deliver debilitating and horrifying hallucinations to individuals in an area. Cannot render allies immune, and is typically found separate from the remainder of his team, barring team leader Mog. Assume Master precautions despite Shaker nature. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  22. ◈ CLAY; Jess Greiss
    Classification: Shaker 4, Tinker 1*, Striker 1
    Semiliquid forcefield constructions are projected out to layer surfaces, quickly setting into a rigid state. Can mold constructions into simple objects and contraptions. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  23. Clay produces a cone-shaped spray of liquid forcefield, covering roughly eight hundred square feet in seconds. Initially fragile, breaking if the target is already moving at a walking pace at the point of contact, the forcefield sets to a consistency akin to sheet metal, capable of being bent or broken with exerted force at the edges. Further spray can layer the field for additional strength. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  24. Cricket – Like Stormtiger, she was a onetime combatant in the underground fighting tournaments. Cricket is a young woman with vastly accelerated reflexes and the ability to generate and hear subsonic noises. She can use these noises to disorient and induce vertigo in her foes or use staccato blasts as a form of radar. She favors kama as a weapon – short scythes that can each be held in one hand. Covered in small scars, she wears a metal cage over her face and keeps her hair short. - Cast (In Depth)
  25. Defense/Control: Crucible - Detail Generator - Shaker, spreadsheet by Wildbow.
  26. Crucible caught him. A forcefield bubble surrounded the figure, pale blue, then flared a brilliant orange-white.

    Mannequin would be fireproof, though. Even an extreme heat like Crucible could create wouldn’t have an effect. Still, it meant one was contained. - Excerpt from Sting 26.3
  27. “Three. Nothing notable. Edict and Licit, a low-rated master and a low-rated striker. We also have one villainess who occasionally tries to make it in one of the big cities and then retreats back home when she can’t cut it. Calls herself Damsel of Distress.”

    He reconnected his spear as they passed through the door. “I know her. Mover and shaker. Storms of unevenly altered gravity, time and space. Edict and Licit keep her in check?” - Excerpt from Interlude 16 (Donation Bonus #2)
  28. Damsel of Distress High recoil 'shotgun' bursts of warped space, disintegration and gravity shearing destroy virtually anything, fling her back. Can be used as mover power - parahumanList, bolded edit by Wildbow.
  29. ◈ FEINT; Q.J. Irvine
    Classification: Master/Shaker 2
    Projects moving-object illusions based on nearby objects or persons. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  30. Feint can generate ‘hard light’ shells around objects and individuals, then mobilize these shells for a duration before they expire. Images can be made to follow a set path, turning corners, and move in whatever manner Feint sees fit. Images break after five to ten seconds or when subjected to an impact or obstacle that would block their continued movement. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  31. Professional Status
    Classification Shaker
    Status Unknown - Fleur, edit by Wildbow.
  32. “And this second group, The Pure, is the second offshoot of that Aryan group, I take it?”

    “Small but powerful. Their leader, Purity, is a Blaster 8 and Mover 4.”

    “Yeah, there’s a Breaker 9, a Shifter 8 with Stranger 3 and a Master 6 in that group? I buy that they’re powerful.” - Excerpt from Sentinel 9.1
  33. Fog is (like many breakers) a sub-class shaker, in that his breaker power has a shaker (and stranger) side effect (the broad cloud of semisolid fog he generates). Much like Shadow Stalker. You can see 9.1 for brief mention of these breaker sub-classes, I think. - Queen 18.5, comment by Wildbow.
  34. I have a slightly different take on Breakers than I did as I wrote that part & the comment. The story itself is unchanged because you can effectively flip the two characters around, but I'd call Night a breaker and Fog a Changer (or call them both breakers, depending). I've also left it as is with the idea that the PRT are always going to be a bit wobbly with classifications (and especially numbers) given the lack of complete information they have. - Excerpt from a comment on Reddit by Wildbow.
  35. Fog, Geoff Schmidt – Has the ability to partially or wholly become a living mist, with solidity varying depending on his wishes and the ability to erode living matter. - Cast (In Depth)
  36. ◈ FUME; Livia Noche
    Classification: Blaster/Shaker 4
    Projectiles explode into noxious gas. - PRT: Department Sixty Four, thread II [Worm Quest] - Page 47
  37. Fume casts out large, baseball sized bullets that move with enough force to break bones, one from each hand per two or three seconds. These bullets, on striking a surface, produce a cloud of sulphurous gas. The gas has a smell comparable to rotten eggs or skunk, and produces an immediate, albeit mild burning sensation, particularly around the mucus glands. - PRT: Department Sixty Four, thread II [Worm Quest] - Page 47
  38. Professional Status
    Classification Brute, Mover, Breaker
    Status Active - Glory Girl, edit by Wildbow.
  39. Glory Girl, Victoria Dallon (Incarcerated; Asylum) – Possessed of flight, invincibility, and capable of deadlifting over a ton. She radiates an energy that makes her allies more inclined to like, respect and look up to her, while making her terrifying and intimidating to her enemies. Following the conclusion of the Slaughterhouse Nine arc, Glory Girl was altered by her sister, in both mind and body, and was placed in an asylum for parahumans, where she currently remains. - Cast (In Depth)
  40. 40.0 40.1 40.2 The Wards, their powers, how to use them? I thought. If I went by the PRT classifications, Tecton was a tinker with shaker capabilities. Wanton was a breaker, someone who altered themselves or their relation to the world by some characteristic of his power, becoming a shaker effect, a telekinetic storm. Annex was the same, only he became a living spacial distortion effect, a living application of Vista’s power. Golem, no doubt a shaker. - Excerpt from Crushed 24.1
  41. His fingertips ran along the white ‘fans’ at his waist, then he jabbed one hand inside. A hand of concrete lunged out of the floor to dissipate the swarm.

    A little slow, but not bad.

    Another part of the swarm congealed into a rough decoy, and Golem clutched it in a fist of concrete. Faster this time. The bugs seeped out through the gaps in the fingers as the hand retreated into the floor’s surface.

    Each panel of the fan was a different material. Concrete, steel, granite, wood. - Excerpt from Scarab 25.2
  42. Rather than try to defend himself, he tucked his chin to his collar-bone, let himself fall, and thrust his hands into the armor panels for pavement.

    Double-thrust, one hand extending from the other, pushing Chevalier off the hand. - Excerpt from Interlude 26a
  43. Of the six of them, four were shakers in some respect. The classification included forcefields, effects like Grue’s, and powers that reshaped the battlefield, like Vista’s. - Excerpt from Crushed 24.1
  44. The question is essentially, 'What part of the Trump's trigger event determines the nuances of the resulting power?'

    In short, what was the relationship to powers at the time of the trigger event? - reddit comment by Wildbow. (Lists Galvanate, Grue, Othala and Usher)
  45. Grue, Brian Laborn – Controls the West side of the city. His powers allow him to generate a darkness that consumes or dampens visual and most auditory information, as well as some specific signals. This serves to blind and nearly deafen those within, confuses the sense of touch, dampens the effects of radiation and weakens the powers of those within (to varying ends). Since his second trigger event, Grue has the ability to use a single, weaker, less informed version of a power anyone within his darkness possesses. This second trigger event proved traumatic enough that he’s stepped down from his position as group leader. - Cast (In Depth)
  46. “Faultline’s Crew. Mercenaries, low rating, mediocre rating, low rating… A Shaker 12? Seriously?”
    “The girl has cognitive deficiencies that reduce the effective threat she poses, but yes. Again, that group is not an imminent threat. Inthe current situation, I might suggest you leave them be if you cross paths, conserve your group’s strength for the priority opponents. The Merchants and Hookwolf’s group.” - Excerpt from Sentinel 9.1
  47. Labyrinth – Retains the ability to manipulate her immediate environment almost completely. While this only extends a relatively short distance around her, her influence gradually radiates outward as she remains in one place for a time. One of the more extreme examples of how powers can affect one mentally, she veers between lucidity and a dissociative fugue state. - Cast (In Depth)
  48. Female. Blaster 4, Mover 3 and Shaker 3.

    Unofficial leader of New Wave, known to the media and the general public as 'Photon Mom', much to her annoyance. Mother of eighteen year old Laserdream and fifteen year old Shielder. Wife of Manpower. - Lady Photon, edit by Wildbow.
  49. Lady Photon’s daughter and niece were in the air with her. Laserdream and Glory Girl. Mother and daughter shared the same general powers; flight, the ability to raise forcefield bubbles around themselves, and the ability to project lasers from their hands. As a consequence, their fight with Purity was something of a light show. - Excerpt from Buzz 7.9
  50. Professional Status
    Classification Blaster (5 or higher) Mover (4 or higher) Shaker 2
    Status Active - Laserdream, edit by 70.49.244.59 (Wildbow).
  51. Laserdream – Eldest child of Lady Photon and Manpower. Has the same powers as her mother, with less facility with forcefields and stronger flight/laser blasts. Wore a white bodysuit with a comet motif in a gradient of ruby red and magenta, with a red hairband and a coquettish sweep of blond hair over one side of her face. - Cast (In Depth)
  52. 52.0 52.1 ◈ LIGHTSLINGER; Camden Ito
    Classification: Blaster/Shaker 8
    Turns nearby light sources into weapon emplacements. - PRT Quest (Anchorage)
  53. 53.0 53.1 Marquis – Amy Dallon’s father, an osteokinetic, capable of manipulating bones, including his and any exposed bone of his enemy. A powerful Shaker and Shifter, once leader of a villain group in Brockton Bay’s ‘bad old days’, Marquis heads a cell block in the men’s wing. - Cast (In Depth)
  54. “Be advised,” I reported, my hand to my ear, “They’re attempting retreat in vehicles. Original plan may hit a snag. Topsy’s got a newbie supervillain working for him. Mockshow. If I’m remembering right, she’s a master-slash-shaker six.” - Excerpt from Scarab 25.3
  55. I noted Mock, but I couldn’t see much of what she was doing. Her power, though, put her in the same general category as Rachel. She empowered minions. They even fit into the same general weight class as Rachel’s dogs. The difference, though, was that they were inanimate. Loose, telekinetically animated servants, typically with the size, clout and general strategy of a grown rhino. Charge things, hit them hard, repeat. - Excerpt from Scarab 25.3
  56. 56.0 56.1 “The only other one we can identify by name is Mokosh. She’s a Blaster-Shaker hybrid. She ‘blasts’ something very much like razor wire, spearing it into surfaces or people. Each shot is connected to the previous shot, and once she’s landed a hit on someone, she can sever limbs, heads, or deliver deep gouges with the follow-up fire. A series of shots can riddle an area with nearly invisible wires that are sharp enough to slice into flesh. We’re reasonably confident that she’s done this to trap hostages within the buildings. Move carefully.” - PRT: Department Sixty Four, thread II [Worm Quest] - Page 32
  57. Narwhal was one of the named examples. Despite people’s impressions, she didn’t demonstrate this against Leviathan.

    She creates crystalline forcefields and can move them at high velocities. She can also, if you’re within fifty feet of her, create a forcefield that bisects part of your body. Bling, you’re missing an arm. Bling, you’re missing an upper body. - Prey 14.3, comment by Wildbow.
  58. 58.0 58.1 ◈ OGUN; Mulatu Desalegn
    Classification: Tinker-Shaker
    Tinker produces devices by passively altering surroundings, without active tinkering. - WD Helena, document by Wildbow.
  59. Romp Alternate name for Mockshow, above - parahumanList, bolded edit by Wildbow.
  60. Rune – The youngest member of Empire Eighty-Eight at present, a teenage girl, Rune can touch an object to attune to it, after which point she has the ability to telekinetically manipulate it. These objects can weigh several tons each. Rune wears a robe in black and red. - Cast (In Depth)
  61. 61.0 61.1 “Uncontrolled matter-annihilation bursts in his immediate vicinity,” I said. “Ex-member of the Merchants, a local gang of dealers and users.”

    “Blaster-eight, easy, if not a straight ten, despite his relatively short range,” Tattletale supplied, “But I’m not sure he does what Skitter thinks he does, and that’s why I want to talk to him.” - Excerpt from Queen 18.5
  62. Consistency - Is the power accurate? Does it always do what you want it to when it's used? Scrub was a powerful shaker/blaster but couldn't really control where the blasts hit with any degree of accuracy. At most he spammed a general area. We nerf consistency here and Mr. Snatch moves objects 5 feet, but in random directions. Or he reaches out blind, seizes objects in the general direction he's pointing, but might grab the gun instead of the screw, or the target's watch. - reddit comment, by Wildbow.
  63. Scrub dips into trump with the heavy interdimensional slam and ability to ignore/negate most brute defenses. He'd take a chunk out of Alexandria, for example.

    But it's only a dip. - reddit comment by Wildbow.
  64. Shatterbird (Missing) – Typically the one that heralds the arrival of the Slaughterhouse Nine at a new city, Shatterbird is a silicakinetic with the ability to manipulate glass at will over a wide area. She was born in the Arab Emirates and dosed with a Cauldron formula, prompting the manifestation of her powers and the deaths of thousands. Eventually made her way to London, then America, joining the Slaughterhouse Nine. She was kidnapped by the Undersiders and controlled by Regent for some time, escaped in the Echidna Arc, and is expected to have died in the collapse of Coil’s base. - Cast (In Depth)
  65. Professional Status
    Classification Blaster (3 or lower) Mover (2 or lower) Shaker (4 or higher)
    Status Deceased - Shielder, edit by Wildbow.
  66. Shielder (Deceased) – Youngest childof Lady Photon and Manpower. The inverse of his sister, was a verystrong forcefield user, with little to no flight and weak laser blasts. Wore a white costume with a blue shield motif, with blue dyed hair. Slain by Leviathan. - Cast (In Depth)
  67. Weld took the folders and opened the one for the Wards, glanced through it to memorize the faces of his new team.
