- They can’t
be harmed by weapons such as knives, swords, baseball bats, forks,
- Can possess
bodies that aren’t occupied by a soul, or the bodies of
smaller beings such as birds, cats, insects, etc. because their
persona can overtake the inhabitant’s. Larger creatures
like humans are much more difficult and can only be attempted
by very strong and experienced spectres. Felines however, are
the easiest to occupy because they are void of souls.
They require a certain amount of energy every second they’re
on Earth. If they don’t find the energy, they disappear. No
one knows where they go, but they simply fade. Without enough energy,
it’s often difficult to hold objects or even speak.
Impatient (for the energy they know they’re wasting every
second) and forgetful. Unless they focus their minds on one matter,
it’s liable their thoughts will simply disappear. Other than
that, the personalities they had in their former life.
Eternal if they refuse to pass on, very limited if they are unfocused.
They do not age.
They do not reproduce and usually have no urge to. Realistically,
nature is more apt to get rid of them, which is why it’s even
challenging to do simple tasks.
Since energy is a must, they take it wherever they can; from light
bulbs and heaters to auras and people. With this energy they can
become quite lifelike, and are able to speak to others and touch
material things. It’s doubtful they would be able to drain
so much energy from someone to cause them much harm, but head aches
and increased sleepiness would be the symptoms.
If one chooses
to not have a human form and rather wisps of smoke, their energy
can be used elsewhere such as for communicating and holding objects.
When in the
bodies of other creatures, they use much less energy. It is cramped,
however, and they can be harmed in this state.
