Every power comes with its own flavor text: a couple of lines that describe how the power looks in action. That this text isn't essential to the use of the power is not a flaw but a strength of the game. Players can choose how their characters’ powers act, customizing each for the theme of the character or feel of the campaign. This type of cosmetic alteration can be taken to almost any extent; you can change a little, or a lot, or almost everything in an effort to make your character look exactly as you imagine.
