Also Called

  • Ghost Whispering
  • Post-Mortem Communication
  • Spiritual Affinity


User can view ghosts/spirits of deceased and communicate and/or interact with them, even if they have possessed inanimate objects/subjects/people. They are able to repel and run spirits away from an area, compel to employ an armada of ghosts, and may even view a visual conception of a spirit world in a trance if desired.

Well trained mediums are even capable of channeling the energy and powers of spirits making them potential host/conduits for channeling their powers through their bodies and manifesting their qualities for their own.





  • Ghosts can visit the user against their will; and will always come to them at least expected moments since this power attracts spirits.
  • Making deals with a spirit can be dangerous.
  • Some spirits may not be benevolent, others may try and trick the user to do bad.
    • Some may be demons pretending to ghost.
  • Spirits may be able to occasionally possess the user.
