The Hypnotist / Rays

Aurora Pagano

From the series 'Below the Surface' (a human & sea life parallel)
Rays are mesmerizing swimmers, have hypnotic movements, and electromagnetic senses useful at darker depths or in murky waters. Electric Rays can generate and discharge strong currents to stun other creatures. Much like powerful humans who use their status to inhibit or paralyze others, rendering them unable to act or progress.
