A motivator is a device that replicates abilities from an Epic's power set.


Motivators are created by harvesting the cells of dead Epics.[1] These cells are stored in the motivator, which releases various powers when exposed to different electrical currents.[2] Motivators are responsible for keeping the cells of Epics alive, which includes feeding them, regulating their temperature, and dealing with any produced waste.[2]


In Firefight, David Charleston uses a motivator called a Spyril to move quickly between the rooftops of Babilar.[3]


  • Epic mitochondrial DNA, the key ingredient in all motivators, is used as high-level currency between the Reckoners and arms dealers.[1]
  • Any given piece of Epic-based technology requires a motivator to function.[3]
