Power to use the abilities of spirit. Variation of Mythic Physiology.

Also Called

  • Spectral Being
  • Spirit Form/Mimicry


User with this ability either is or can transform into a 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 a more solid form or by taking a vessel to give them physical shape, which can be done either by possessing an already existing form (either a living being or an object) or by animating and wrapping part of the environment "around" them.

There are several types of spirits, ranging from the souls of dead (ghosts) to the spirits of places, objects, concepts and/or elements. Several forms of magic center around contacting and bargaining with spirits.



Ghost Physiology: spirits/souls of the dead, often bound to stay until certain conditions are met. This can vary from honorable burial, unfinished business/revenge or self-appointed duties. Ancestral spirits are part of this group, given their involvement/ties with their families.

Spirits of Nature: manifestations/embodiments of natural phenomena, places, elements or animals.

Poltergeist Physiology - Spirits that haunt a person rather than a location, who destroy things for no reason and get more violent the more they are ignored.



  • Certain forms of magic and technology allow their users to control and/or imprison spirits.
  • May be vulnerable to any abilities that affect spirits such as a Spirit Barrier or Exorcism.
