Pandora’s powers emulate her past. She is able to instill into people everything she released into the world with a simple touch, word, or thought, making her, in essence, another Pandora’s box.
For example, she could instill in someone hatred for another or grief. Make them feel a seven deadly sin and so on and so on (many things left that damn box -_-) All of her choosing.
However, death is much harder for her to cause. She can not outright kill someone, it takes too much concentration and power. If she were to kill someone she would be unconscious for weeks, having used up too much of her energy.
Pandora however rarely uses her powers.
Pandora is neither dead nor living. She was a creation made from earth and water. It’s why she, being the first woman on earth, hasn’t aged a day in her life.
While a side of Pandora is actually sorry for what she released upon the world, the other side of her, the side gifted with mischievous, thinks the world would be boring withoout what she released. Go figure.
Aphrodite gave to her unparalleled beauty, grace and desire. Hermes, the messenger god, gave her a cunning, deceitful mind and a crafty tongue. Athena clothed her and taught her to be deft with her hands. Poseidon bestowed on her a pearl necklace that would prevent her from drowning. Apollo taught her to play the lyre and to sing. Zeus gave her a foolish, mischievous and idle nature and last but not least, Hera gave her the wiliest gift, curiosity.
