Age shifting

Age shifting is the ability to change one's own age.
  • The Russian is the only character known to have this ability. (Comrades, Part 1) 
The Russian's ability to change his own age allowed him to change his age from that of an old man to that of a young man. He seemed to be able to utilize the skills he had as a young man, such as strength and knife handling. He was also capable of shifting his age to that of a young boy, so as to try preventing Noah from killing him. (Comrades, Part 1) 
While shifting ages, the Russian cannot change genders, as it is noted that his crime "family" is made up of all men. In fact, everything about him appears the same except his age. For instance, while appearing as a young man, the Russian had a large cut on his forehead. The same cut remained, even after shifting to the age of a young boy. Additionally, the Russian's clothes never changed while he was shifting ages. (Comrades, Part 1)

Age transferal

Age transferal is the ability to transfer the aging and life force to and from an object and make the user younger or older.
  • Leona Mills is the only character known to have this ability. (The Agent) 
Leona Mills has shown she is capable of reverting herself from a rotting death-like state to normal by absorbing the life force from a wooden chair. (Chapter 9 of The Agent) Leona ages faster than normal, transforming over several hours from appearing as a young woman to middle-aged with deepening lines on her face. (Chapter 10 of The Agent) 
The aged bodies Rachel found after a battle at the circus suggest that she can also apply her ability to living things. (Chapter 10 of The Agent) Leona has also shown she can reverse her ability to transfer life-force into other people or things. Chapter 12 of The Agent)
