Shion’s ability

With his arm Dream Catcher and the thread made by his Semblance and Dust, Shion can interfere with sleeper’s dream. He can stand against Grimm with cooperation with the hearts of others he sends into sleeper’s dream.
Those who dive into the sleeper’s dream can only exist by switching themselves already in the dream. This means Shion himself cannot get in the dream of someone he never knows before.


Once they are in, they are not the same person in real world because they are constructed with sleeper’s memory and impressions towards them.


The duration of dives depends on Shion’s aura amount. It takes more aura with many divers.
Since he is a Huntsman slaying Grimms, his unique equipment includes Dream Catcher and related materials such as telephones and stuffed toys.
There will be 12 coins appear in a dream regardless the number of people Shion sends. Something happens when coins are used. That consumption also uses Shion’s aura.
