[adm]I have some serious concerns which is arising from Devil Heart right, including move Ulv up in tier. I will take the time to lay out these concerns, neither approving nor denying this application until I have time to speak with the rest of staff on it including the person in question.
My first issue is the idea that using a singular ability which can be effectively used to solve character problems and arcs with the snap of a finger. When we first approved the ability, and the second time, I did so under the assumption it would be seldom used as a means to progress individual plots. In my experience of seeing it used this successively, if I was to approve this upgrade it would seem like power farming. You have a singular positive ability which when used depletes your energy, usually meant to be a counter balance to using it in a fight. But by trying to use this as justification for an upgrade, it appears you're mitigating one of the largest drawbacks while getting a boon for a completely social thread: A power upgrade.
Power upgrades are given on a two faceted approach, in character work which reaffirms that upgrade in a way satisfying to staff and the basis of trust. Trust, usually, being defined as the belief the person understands the power scale, won't abuse their power, and has an good reason to be at the tier they are. In this case I don't feel Ulv has met the two facets of an upgrade. I don't support the idea of two purely social threads which do not equate to the work of an upgrade of that tier, nor can I accurate say you've met the trust category.
We've had multiple issues lately with Ulv and balancing her, not because you're attempting to abuse the system but because it's clear you still have a lot to understand about the system. With that lack of knowledge, which can only be gained by someone informing you of your errors, I can't slap an approval on this.
Other staff members, chime in. [/adm]
