Age Shifting is the ability to accelerate or reverse the aging process. It can be used offensively to instantly kill mortals by accelerating their age until it reverts the victims to nothing but dust.
The demon Cryto displayed this power by changing Gail Altman into a young woman again as a reward for summoning him. However, he killed her friends, Helen and Amanda, by rapidly aging them to the point where they were reduced to dust.
