User can project/separate their consciousness/presence/spirit, alternatively known as their astral form, from their material bodies, allowing for perception, interaction and travel independent of physical limitation. This state is usually achieved through entering a trance (via lucid dreaming or deep meditation), with the user gaining access or influence over the Mental and Astral Planes, as well as potentially other planes of existence, which can extend so enough as to allow the user to move and exist outside the limits of space and time using their astral form. Experienced individuals may be able to control both their astral and corporeal presences, allowing them to extend and project their astral selves without having to lose consciousness in their physical forms, as well as separate others from their physical forms to either to travel alongside them or to imprison them in an incorporeal state. Telepaths often astral project by projecting their minds as well as that of others.




  • User's body is essentially dead/in a coma and thus very vulnerable during astral projection:
    • May become possessed while on the Astral Plane.
    • May be killed trapping the user in astral form.
    • Can be affected by users of Soul Manipulation.
  • May be vulnerable to Astral Trapping.
  • May be unable to control corporeal and astral presences.
  • May require user to be asleep or be in a meditative state while riding the astral plane.
  • Some users may not be immune from those with Astral Manipulation while in spirit form.
  • May be unable to use any other abilities they possess while in astral form.
  • Most users are completely incapable of affecting the physical world in their projected state.
  • Prolonged separation may prove harmful to the user's body or soul.
  • Not returning to the host body in a period of time may render you a spirit forever.
