In a way, this stems from my belief. This may or may not be backed up by the actual chakra systems that are traditionally mapped out (which I know is a thing), but intuitively, I just kinda know without needing to be told: there's chakra points in the palms, and somewhere on each finger. (I think on the part of the finger which is the part that actually grabs stuff and such? The side fingerprints are taken from? Forget what the technical term would be.)
Good gloves can be designed to either amplify those, or nullify them. Power nullifiers are important for people who have immense power and need a way to bring it down forcefully. Power amplifiers are rarely needed, strictly speaking, but can help to focus and increase the energy output from the magic being used through the hands.
Incidentally, when I wear gloves, I categorize them. Funnily enough, a power nullifier glove doesn't take much to become a power amplifier glove, and vice-versa. Their construction just intuitively feels like it helps or hinders flow, and I can figure out what would make it do the opposite.
Now, poorly constructed gloves, on the other hand, are gloves that just randomly disperse the energy chaotically. Instead of actually nullifying it, and instead of actually amplifying it, it just causes them to run amok. I can tell when this is the case for a glove, but I can't really tell how to fix it and turn it into an amplifier/nullifier.
Of course, while I can guess by looking at a glove, the only way for me to 100% know what a glove is, is to feel it on my hand. The materials used can make a difference. The form and fit of the glove can make a difference. And I do all of this without thinking about it.
It's another of those mind's eye type things, the things connected to the other realms, which I talked about a few days ago. I just kinda...instinctively categorize them. Right now, I have a glove which is a rather nice power nullifier. But this is a glove type which can easily have a hole torn in the fingers--when it decays to that point and the fingers stick through, it'll go from nullifier to amplifier.
Incidentally, this is why both Ruby and Vili have their fingerless gloves designed the way they are. Ruby's has a square hole, Vili's a rounded hole, but both have the hole in the palm for the same reason--discharge of magical energy, made easier. (Vili also can change her weapon into a gauntlet, which obviously, serves as a glove which is a power amplifier.)
Soyeah. While this is something that applies to Red Hood Rider, it also applies to my life in general. I wish I actually had some sort of more advanced learning in this field, rather than just intuitive feelings, instinctive vibes as to these concepts.
