Ore Purification: Maerzek: Ore purification lets me remove impurities from metals
Maerzek: Always Equipped for the Job lets me morph my hands into tools
The Favored can purify ore and processed metal through a variety of means. And while all of those marked by Aeva can use every method, most tend to stick to one preferred method. Their bodies adjust to handle this processing so as to not damage themselves, this includes teeth being temporarily strengthened to bite and chew on metal, digestive systems that can pass metal without toxicity. This also allows the impurities to be passed, digested, or expelled, though often in a separate method than the metal. These adjustments happen automatically within the mark, to protect them from the process of purification that might damage another person if it were attempted. Methods include chewing up the metal and spitting out the purified product, swallowing it and regurgitating or passing it, or grinding it in their hands. There are other methods, as discovered by the curious. This metal inside the Favored's body is not protected from outside magical draws, should it be applicable.

Always Equipped for the Job
The Favored is able to mold and manipulate their hands to form tools, both known or unique for the situation that is needed. This is done without pain, and is a fairly quick process. This is done mentally, no need for one hand to be physically manipulated by the other or by other tools. Without being coupled with other abilities, these tools are made of flesh and bone as suited to the Favored, and the tools' appearance reflects this. Should the tool be damaged, the tool automatically reverts back to a hand, with the damage reflected therein, i.e. a screw driver breaks along the shaft, reflected as a break in multiple fingers. This can range from making a key for a lock or a hammer for building a home. The variety of tools available is wide, and is only limited by the amount of mass in the hand, as well as the inability to have inner mechanisms such as adjustable tools. It can make tools smaller than the hand’s mass, but not larger. This ability can be maintained for 1 break at Favored, 3 breaks at Adored, and 6 breaks at Exalted
