Shadow and BoneEdit
It is revealed that Alina had been subconsciously suppressing her power when she was tested as a child in Keramzin for signs of Grisha ability. It was as though she knew that if she was found to be a Grisha, she would be taken away from her best friend, Mal. Alina would only later realize that she had been hiding her power when she saved Mal's life in the Shadow Fold.
Because she was the only one of her kind, the Darkling felt a particular connection to her, as he was also the only one with his power, and believed he needed her to balance out his darkness.
Ruin and RisingEdit
After using all three of Morozova's Amplifiers, Alina's power transcends herself and is bestowed upon random people around the country, and perhaps even further. Afterward, Alina demonstrates Grisha ability. She keeps her power and helps the sun summoners destroy the fold
The new Sun Summoners inherit the task of destroying the Shadow Fold. It is currently unknown what becomes of these newly created Grisha and their gifts.
