Her power is her ability to heal; it is a pain she received in a vision and learned to control. She has many pains with different strengths, each like a talisman that she takes out of herself and then swallows again. With this power she can suck out the pain of a person who suffers. She goes into a trance in which she sings the song the Cooper’s hawk gave her. But none of her pains are any good unless a Cooper’s hawk flies overhead on her way to see the patient.
