"My Mind is the only Sanctuary that Has not been Stolen from Me. Men have tried to breach it before, but I've Learned to Defend it vigorously, for I am only safe with my Innermost thoughts."
― Murtagh Morzansson (Inheritance Cycle)

The power to be highly resistant to psychic attacks. Opposite to Mental Shield Penetration. Not to be confused with Psychic Shadow. Lesser version of Psychic Immunity.

Also Called

  • Mental Protection/Shield
  • Occlumency
  • Perspicuity
  • Psychic Resistance
  • Telepathic/Telepathy Resistance
  • Mind Control Resistance


The user is highly resistant to any/all mental intrusion, including psychic or empathic powers, Hypnosis, Mental Hallucination, deception, etc. Mind readers only “hear” static, while mind controllers are incapable of manipulating those shielded.






  • Users are only resistant, not immune.
  • Doesn't work against physical abilities or actual attacks.
  • May require mental discipline and focus to prevent external penetration.
  • Mental Shield Penetration may be able to penetrate the shield.
  • Meta Fear Inducement can affect them directly regardless of how powerful their psychic shielding is.
  • Powerful opponents may still be able to affect the user to some extent.
  • Shield may have to be consciously activated.
  • May have weakness against Consciousness Separation and Consciousness Shattering.
  • Still vulnerable to Emotion Manipulation as their minds are only protected, not their emotions or feelings.
    • As such, if one lets their emotions get the better of them, it might leave their minds vulnerable.
