Umbrakinesis or Sciakinesis is the ability to mentally generate and manipulate darkness, deactivated photons mostly in the absence of light. One with this ability can even deactivate and repulse or travel through shadows (see Shadow Travel) by converting deactivated photons into a dark version of a portal.
After the battle, Nico walks into the woods and Percy follows him. Nico tells Percy he has to investigate his past. As Nico walks away, Percy states that the shadows of the forest were reaching out to Nico as if they were embracing him.
