“Rule number one, Taren.” Diana settled her little brother onto her lap and pointed over to where Averia was eating some pizza. “Due to being super awesome at almost everything, Averia does not actually need to consume food because she lives off pure awesomeness.”
“This means that if you’re still hungry, you can always ask for some of her food. Believe me, I’ve done that for years, and you can do it too.” Diana nodded sagely. “See how you’ve already eaten your slices of pizza? Ask Averia for some of hers, and you’ll definitely get at least one.”
“Really?” Taren asked sceptically. “But pizza tastes really nice. What if she wants to eat all of hers?”
“It’s precisely because pizza tastes nice that she’ll share with you.” Diana cackled evilly. “You see, our big sister takes being a big sister very seriously. If something is picking on you, it dies. If you’re hungry, you get food. If you fall off the roof, you’ll get caught. Now, being a Yun-Farron, you probably don’t like people doing everything for you.”
Taren nodded. He wanted to be just like his parents, strong enough to do everything himself.
“Which is why you’ll grow up to be super awesome and cool because the only way Averia will stop doing stuff for you is if you show her you can do it yourself.” Diana grinned. “Why do you think she calls me to repair the air conditioning whenever it conks out, or why she lets me fiddle with her scroll. It’s because I’ve proved I can handle things. Sure, she’s still an overprotective psycho, but she knows when to step back.” She huffed Taren. “But you’re still a little kid, so you should take full advantage of her big sister behaviour to get more pizza.”
That part made perfect sense to Taren. “I’ll try.”
A minute later, Taren was sitting on Diana’s lap again with two more slices of pizza.
“See?” Diana said. “It’s like magic.”

Increased appetite is part of Ragnarok. It is particularly pronounced during childhood and adolescence when the body is adapting to the Semblance although it is still present in adulthood. For example, Fang still eats more than a normal person, but nowhere near as much as Diana did when she was a kid.
