Ectoplasmic Abilities, more commonly called, 'Ghost Powers', are powers based on Ghost Energy.
Power User TypesEdit
There are many different types of Ectoplasmic Power Users:
Infected individuals are the weakest Ectoplasmic Power users. They gain their powers by being exposed to Ectoplasmic Radiation. Infected Users cannot control Elemental Powers
Absorbers are individuals who can use Ectoplasmic Powers because they absorb tiny bits of Ectoplasmic energy all the time. They can release many attacks, but if they run out of energy, it takes to up to a week to absorb enough energy to be able to use them again, unless charged by any other Ectoplasmic power user. Being an Absorber is a result of an un-identified mutation. Because of the Ectoplasmic Energy entering their bodies, they tend to age slower than normal beings. Absorbers can also harness a single Elemental power, complete with elemental form. The most famous 'Absorbers' are Tory and Dawn.
Crossers are individuals who have had their DNA mixed and re-arranged with Ectoplasmic gel, or a freak accident where their DNA is mixed with Ectoplasmic Energy. Crossers are different from Infected as the are more powerful, though not as powerful as Absorbers. All Crossers can control 1 Elemental Power with a 1% chance of gaining a 2nd.
Fusions are some of the most powerful Ectoplasmic Power users. Standard Fusions are the result of a direct fusion between one whole living being and one whole conscious ghost. This normally results in the ghost taking control of the host's mind. One of the exceptions, and one of the most famous fusions, is IceBite, fusion of the human kid Leinad Llehctim and one of the few benevolent ghosts, 'Etibeci'. The 2 exist in total harmony in the same body, Leinad having control, Etibeci only taking control when Leinad or his friends are in grave danger and/or it is necessary for both. Fusions can harness 2-4 Elemental Powers, while making multiple (up to 10-15) Forms. Another known Fusion is ODST grievous.
If Good Standard Fusions are rare, then semi-fusions are down-right impossible to find. They are the result of an individual being fused with a separated piece of a ghost. They are usually created by Good Standard fusions when someone they care about is dying and, since they have recently revived someone, they do not have the healing power to heal their gruesome injuries. They have the powers the original had prior to the procedure, and those of the person the ghost shard came from. May becomes a Semi-Fusion when she is mortally wounded by Surotrat and IceBite tries to use a shard of Etibeci's essence to reverse the damage.
Undead Fusions are fusions between a whole ghost and a dead/dying being. They are as powerful as normal Fusions, but the dying being's mind is always in control. Except for very rare occasions, Undead Fusions are usually made from Evil Beings that were dying when fused by Ghosts, but the Being's mind usurping the Ghost's and the being healing itself with the Ghost's energy. They can control between 1-4 Elemental powers. The most notorious Undead Fusion is Tartorus.
The cause of inertion is usually caused by an over exposure to ectoplasm causing the body of the individual absorb all types of said powers and therefore all the powers will cancel each other out. Very few have the will to tolerate the effects of this over exposure and many have died trying to gain all forms of power. As for the individual that survives this they will gain the amazing ability to survive almost everytype of physical torment but will still live and die normally. Derek Sanders is one such human however the cause was a mere accident on his part.
