Title pretty much says it all honestly. I wanna design a character for my fantasy story with abilities that are not only shown to break the laws of thermodynamics (the first and second laws specifically), but are even explicitly stated to break them as well. Most fictional characters do this through magical/divine means such as Chi, Spiritual Energy or some kind of connection to a sacred, all-powerful deity (or maybe the character IS a deity him/herself, or at least the mortal reincarnation of one). I on the other hand wanna achieve the same feat without having to rely on such easy... uh... let's just call them tropes, ok (plot devices and crutches sound a bit too harsh)?
Obviously, the source behind such a power and the way in which it is obtained WILL be unscientific in nature (can't explain EVERYHTING in my world through science), I’m just looking for a way to justify the existence of a non-thermodynamic abiding character in a thermodynamic abiding universe. Like, the first law of thermodynamics states that the total amount of energy in the universe remains constant and that any and all instances of energy spontaneously materializing into existence must be met with said energy returning to whence it come from before it can be harnessed, while the second law of thermodynamics establishes the concept of entropy and makes things such as 100% efficiency, heat flowing from cold to hot environments and energy be extracted from regions of space in thermal equilibrium impossible or so unlikely that we'll all be dead long before we can see it happen. Just what exactly makes these two laws function the way they do? Do they rely on time to function? Are there any instances in history where they've been temporarily violated? Are they laws in the sense that breaking them would have consequences for the entire universe?
Also yes, I will admit it does seem rather strange that I'm actively TRYING to design an ability that goes against the laws of physics, even though I've also been trying to make as much sense as possible out of all of my other ideas posted on this forum. I also agree with the notion that trying to come up with a scientific explanation as to how to break the laws of science is, in of itself, a bit ridiculous. My response to both of these things is the same response Sonic the Hedgehog would give you if you asked him how he manages to race down a hill in the form of a perfectly spherical ball without killing himself or making him sick. It's just how we roll (does this pun make sense? Let me know if it doesn't).
