First, let’s tackle the incorrect punctuation (as opposed to the stuff that’s merely awkward): the apostrophes — or rather, the lack of apostrophes. (Also, powers where makes no sense, so I’m changing that, too.)
You find out you have powers (called shifting) to manipulate other people’s (and animals’) emotions and desires. What do you plan on doing now?
This example contains too many parentheses. That stuff can be set apart with commas instead, with or without some changes to the words themselves: You find out you have powers, called shifting, to manipulate the emotions and desires of both people and animals. What do you plan to do now?
Back in my day, we considered the ability to manipulate (through non-standard means) the emotions of others to be just a subset of empathy (the psionic version, of course, not the kind all humans are expected to have), and we didn’t need to give it a new weird name and make it sound like something out of a superhero comic. *sigh* On the other hand, we weren’t writing superhero-type stories.
