User with this ability either is or can transform into an spirit: a supernatural and conscious (although not necessarily sentient) being that in its normal state is incorporeal, invisible and immaterial. Many spirits are able to materialize either by shifting into more solid form or taking a vessel to give them physical shape, this can be done either by possessing already existing form (either living being or object) or by animating and wrapping part of the environment "around" them.
