The Ugliness That Hangs Like Dark Robes
Telepathy: standard (rank 1)
Dark specters are the most common ones. It's a sad cliche that human beings are for the most part terrible to each other. The guy in the corner sneaking glances at me has a long sexual deviant specter. Judging from its teeth he's imagining shoving me over this table and having his way with me. There's a big fat bloated specter hanging over another guy in the line. He's probably wondering if he can get away with swiping a CD at the cashier. It sucks when I see these dark specters, thinking they're getting away with their evil little agendas they scowl at me when they grab my attention. As if I was looking at someone's diary full of dirty little secrets.
The Beauty That Shimmers and Warms Me
Telepathy: standard (rank 1)
True love exists. How do I know? Because I can fucking see it. Like that sickening couple in the corner. Their two heart shaped pinkish specters cuddling up against each other. I see a lot of bad thoughts but when I see something as beautiful as that, two thoughts intertwining and finding the power to become one well that's beautiful. It makes it worth seeing all the shitty things people usually think about in their days. And while I have sadly seen true love go bad, the once beautiful pink specters slowly turning gray and sad, I try not to let it get me down. If you keep focusing on the negative well you're just going to go crazy... er.
The Eternal Struggle of Good Versus Evil
Force of Will: standard (rank 1)
There is a problem with my voyeurism. You see we were never suppose to see the deepest thoughts of other people. I'm already fucked up as an individual for being able to do so, imagine if everyone else could. The thing is these specters are always there but for some reason when I'm around they become more pronounce. I don't have special ghost eyes, it seems that they become stronger, feelings become more intense and conversely the specters start to grow in power. So I watch as the guy thinking about stealing that CD actually goes ahead and does it. The good guy buying the coffee for a cute girl behind him slips a filthy note into her purse. The angry guy behind me shoves me out of the way. The lovers in the corner? Well let's just say they've gone to inappropriate making out. Normally this doesn't really harm anyone but today the wrong guy just walked through the door.
The Manifestation of Moral Specters
Illusion Control: superior (rank 2)

A jilted ex. Their specters of jealousy drip off their heads, dropping in greenish black globs along their shoulders. I watch him cock the guys arm back like a marionette as he punches the young male lover in the face. The girl screams, her pink specter puffing up like a blow fish as the male's starts to fill the room. Cups fall over, tables upturn as their physical human feeling bags break out in a fight in the coffee shop. Ever wonder why when a fight breaks out the place seems way more trashed then it should be? Specters baby, invisible feelings suddenly gaining the strength as they slowly manifest into our real world. God knows me being here isn't helping things. I watch as the ex slams the other guy into the glass. It shouldn't have been hard enough to cause it to shatter but the glass gives way as I watch the specters float around the spectacle of emotion. Seeing everyone around me panic I decide to make my exit. I've done enough damage here for one day.
