This doesn't just apply to Kurapica, although his conviction is stronger than most.

I mean, their powers didn't have to work like that, they just chose for them to.
I'll put it this way so my comment is spoiler free and doesn't get banned, a character later in the manga uses the conviction system to the extreme and pays a high price because of it
