Sample jobs of strength Powers

Most strength Powers are in some branch of the military. Those that aren't, are sixth class or government agents of another kind. Fifth-class strength Powers or stronger are not eligible for police work, except on contract basis such as with SWAT teams.

Enrigo Martinez is a fourth-class strength Power. He works with the US Department of Justice as an adviser on Powered interests. Although a strength Power, he rarely uses his magic, instead spending his time researching current events related to the interests of strength Powers, providing expert testimony to the Supreme Court and the District Courts. With the rest of his family in the Navy or the Army, he's well-motivated to advocate for their rights. Even if family gatherings tend to be mildly volatile.

Anna Higuchi, a third-class strength Power, is a member of the Coast Guard. A big fan of tabletop roleplaying games, she relaxes with her friends between patrols rolling dice and playing a hero. Since her duties involve activities such as rappelling down to stranded boaters and rescuing them from the middle of hurricanes, it's not too different from her regular work, although she does enjoy the lack of official paperwork and the fewer periods of extended boredom on most patrol days. For one month out of every year, she leaves her unit to work full-time at the PT center, helping keep her fellow Guard members in peak condition.

Janet Singh is a second-class strength Power and an officer in the Army. Her work revolves entirely around fitness: as a member of the Army, she helps train recruits and reserve-duty members, including those needing extra help to achieve the necessary physical conditioning for duty. Although not usually a drill sergeant, she can act as one when needed; most of the time she moves from squad to squad, providing rotating supplemental conditioning.

Louis Martinelli is a six-class strength Power. Although working in the public sector provides him a choice of occupations, the demand for strength Powers is high enough that he doesn't regret his employment as a security guard for a bank. In his younger years, he worked as a male model; now that he's in his fifties, he enjoys the steadier work of deterring crime through being friendly to customers, while also being very muscular. He boosts his income by hiring himself out as a workout partner at the gym he visits, which helps keep him in this rather intimidating shape.

Amelia Martins is a fifth-class strength Power in the Navy, where she works as an IT specialist. While much of what she works on during the day is classified, she also designs web games after hours, and is an active member of the local SCA. She hasn't decided whether or not she plans to marry or have kids, nor will stating such a preference enhance or diminish her career now that it's started: for a modern government that wants to strongly encourage the growth of the strength Power population, providing ample opportunity and excellent family benefits has shown better results than direct interference, with far less legal cost.

(Wondering what strength Powers of each class can do? Here's a detailed chart on what, exactly, their abilities are for each class level.)

Tone-deaf Kelly has long considered her inborn music magic to be useless. But after a disaster drowns the American South in magic, including her whole family except her twin brother, she discovers her “useless” magic lets her hear the voices of those lost. Now, with the help of her twin and her handsome, green-eyed neighbor Derik, she’ll face magic itself to save them–only the attempt may cost her everyone she has left.
