"Sentient programs. They can move in and out of any software still hardwired to the system. That means that anyone we haven't potentially an Agent. Inside the Matrix...they are everyone...and they are no one."
― Morpheus (The Matrix)
― Harbinger (Mass Effect 2)

The ability to transfer one's consciousness into another entity's body and take control of it. Combination of Consciousness Transferal, Teleportation and Possession.

Also Called

  • Possessive Transferal


User can remotely transfer their consciousness into others' body (usually servants or people they are attuned with), overriding their mind and possibly empowering/reshaping their body it as they see fit, often in their own image. They may do it partially to assume direct control of their troops on the battlefield, or personally communicate through them regarding important matters. They may also do it entirely, to instantly reach a faraway destination while retaining their full power, or shrug off lethal damage and even death via instant reincarnation.
