alchemy - the ability to transform the chemical composition of materials to gold.

sterling actually changes the molecular composition of the objects. the mass of the object directly affects how fast he can change the object into gold. but since he doesn't have total control over his ability yet, it can be sporatic. his ability doesn't necessarily affect everything he touches automatically, so it takes concentration to actually work. he can affect humans and living objects, just like king midas in the greek myth. it is unclear whether or not he can affect anything that is not solid (i.e. liquid or gold), and hasn't tried. his ability is limited to just gold, but he is advancing it to include white gold too.
