 There are three main types of Null bracelet: There are three main types of Null bracelet:
-  * **General Purpose Nullification Bracelets**:​ Null bracelets of this type are specifically intended on preventing powers from effecting ​the outside world. Internal abilities (enhanced senses, natural weaknesses like an aversion to iron, and other abilities which do not effect ​the external world) are not blocked. However, external abilities are completely inaccessible to the wearer. While this includes more obvious '​external'​ abilities such as elemental manipulation or auras, this also effects the majority of borderline abilities. A dragon who builds fire internally in order to breath it will find themselves unable to do so. Similarly, shapeshifting is blocked. The best possible guideline is that if an effect is visible from the perspective of an outside observer, or if it has some kind of effect on something other than the character, it's probably blocked. This does mean that species who are naturally strong (such as a minotaur) will still be strong. However, a species whose strength is augmented by magic will find that augmentation removed. Police handcuffs are this variety, but are made of a much more durable metal than the average civilian bracelet.+  * **General Purpose Nullification Bracelets**:​ Null bracelets of this type are specifically intended on preventing powers from affecting ​the outside world.

   * **Custom-Made Nullification Bracelets:​** Custom null bracelets are rare, crafted by enchanters for specific individuals. More common custom bracelets aim to disable specific '​types'​ of powers or weaknesses (such as elemental abilities, certain types of species abilities, auras, etc). It is difficult to disable a specific supernatural ability or weakness alone; a typical custom bracelet will often remove some related abilities the wearer finds beneficial. For example, someone might find that the bracelet they wear to remove their serious cold sensitivity also removes their control over fire or their resistance to extreme heat. More carefully crafted null bracelets can be made to disable a single specific weakness, but these can take months or years to create and are extremely expensive. A more general custom null bracelet (like disabling all aura powers) might be bought for a few thousand dollars. A more specific one might cost in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars, depending on how many supernatural attributes it's intended to remove, and how many it has to not remove. Though considered a kind of bracelet, this kind of enchantment is often applied to other types of jewelry, such as rings, earrings, or necklaces.   * **Custom-Made Nullification Bracelets:​** Custom null bracelets are rare, crafted by enchanters for specific individuals.

   * **Human-Capability Bracelets:​** One of these will force the wearer into a human form with human physiology. All of the wearer'​s senses, as well as their speed and strength, will be in line with the capabilities of a typical human body. The Manta Carlos Police Department'​s power nullification darts have the same effect as this kind of bracelet. The MCPD also has access to handcuffs with this effect, though these are typically reserved for extreme situations.   * **Human-Capability Bracelets:​** One of these will force the wearer into a human form with human physiology.
