Ghosts

Ghosts are the ethereal remnants of those who have perished. While they are rare, they do exist. Most are minor spirits. These creatures are stable and haunt the world of the living because some unfinished business keeps them from passing on. Most do not have any effect on the living world and can do no more than simply manifest as transparent ghosts of their former selves. Even that can be difficult and requires a lot of energy. Because of this, many will have to recharge for a time before appearing again. Ghosts are often tied to either people or locations. When they are in closer proximity to their earthly ties, they are stronger. The father they get from their ties, the weaker they become. Ghosts can "speak" telepathically. Although their words are not physically heard, they can be perceived as such. Sometimes, ghosts can communicate in images or general ideas. However, unless an living individual is very spiritual, it would be difficult to understand and interpret what the ghost is trying to say.

  • The 'Souls RPG Guide has a complete list of rules for ghosts.
  • Ghosts cannot confirm or deny if there is an afterlife, nor can they discuss it at any length.

Anathema Ghosts

Anathema is home to a few ghosts. They are a rare sight and can be seen most often at night. Most of the ghosts can be sighted in Canatrix Valley. Often times, they wander around the church or through the old graveyard. They are very weak and can only form as smokey, indistinct shadows. Their words, if they speak at all, tend to be disjointed and difficult to understand. It is unclear who they once were or what ties them to the land. However, one ghost has recently appeared along the Anatheman boarder and is frighteningly familiar.

  • Anatheman ghosts cannot posses or harm characters
  • Anatheman ghosts can be used or referenced in posts and threads.
  • Kohaku Amarok

    Kohaku Amarok was once a warrior of Anathema who was executed for his crimes. Kohaku's spirit has become bound to the Anatheman lands. Bound by the desire to protect his children and lover, his ghost remains trapped in the mortal realm.

    Sightings

    On some still nights a translucent, lupus or optime bound figure can be seen stalking the borders. He typically starts to roam after the first stars appear and will haunt the trails he used to guard. He can be seen for a limited duration any time during the night, but will never appear during daylight hours. Nor will he necessarily appear every night or in the same location as his previous sightings. On very rare occasions, he can be spotted in optime form around Thackeray Village during times of crisis.

    Encounters

    If a canine approaches Kohaku's ghost, he will shift into optime form. He may attempt to speak, but only those who are blood related to him or highly spiritual can hear his voice. Even then, he "speaks" (see rp guide for ghost communication rules) as if he were underwater. His words are audible, but can be difficult to make out.

    Not all encounters with Kohaku's ghosts are amicable. While he won't outright attack any Anathema who was a member when he was alive, he will become aggressive to strangers and intruders. Kohaku will not be able to recognize new members, so anyone member who joined after April 2016 will be met with aggression. His attacks, while terrifying, do not directly cause injury. Instead, he may chase or pass through his victims, dogging their steps until his spirit grows too weak and vanishes; or until he has run them far enough away from Anatheman territory.

    Description

    Kohaku looks as he did the day of his death, although his body is translucent. In his optime form, he can be seen dressed in his full assassin attire. Check out his profile or wiki for references and a description of him in lupus form.

    Once leader of Anathema Aeron continues to be tied to the pack lands of Anathema.

    Sightings

    Storm Tree Villa, though now the building is an empty fully decaying shell of what it once was brave wolves might cross her just sitting and watching. Aeron might also be spied along pack borders and through the village. Less common she can be found in howling caverns though these sightings are rare.

    Encounters

    Aeron typically never speaks unless you happen to be a blood relative. She mostly seems to answer questions members have through body language or ignoring them. She is a non hostile specter.

    Description

    Aeron is a striking copper and silver vixen, these colors are very vivid in an almost glowing manner. Her gold eyes are the most striking part of her and for many sightings the only thing you see.
