Mad Science

Mad Science is both a psychic ability and a mental disorder. Mad Scientists do not believe themselves to be either psychic or insane, instead believing themselves to be geniuses with scientific insights far beyond that of their peers. This "genius" manifests itself in crafting inventions. These inventions shouldn't work; they are not based on any scientific principle or real scientific breakthrough. Nevertheless they do work, often with terrifying effectiveness.

The principles that the device works on will always make sense to the Mad Scientist and they will often be willing to explain their "incredible breakthrough" at length. However, these principles will not make sense to any sane individual. Once a Mad Scientist has created a prototype of their invention, they typically will have no interest in producing multiple copies on a larger scale. Instead they will turn to their next project.
