"We call it a knack. Silly Wundrous Society-speak, of course; it merely refers to the marvelous and unique gift you possess. . ."
―Jupiter North[src]

A knack is a talent, skill, or unique gift that makes the person who has it stand out. A knack is essential for gaining entrance into the Wundrous Society (though people with knacks may choose to pursue other academic endeavors, as Jack did); it must be deemed extraordinary enough by the Elders at the Show Trial. Some knacks may be very similar to others, yet be performed differently (ex: different fighting techniques, different singing styles etc.). Knacks can range from the practical to the supernatural.
