Yellow Always tormented by headaches. It uses psychic powers, but it is not known if it intends to do so.
II Gold It has mystical powers but doesn't recall that it has used them. That is why it always looks puzzled.
Silver If its chronic headache peaks, it may exhibit odd powers. It seems unable to recall such an episode.
