Chapter 9 Schools and Secret Societies Subsection Excerpt 6
The most recent of the secret societies. When the Psypher crashed, the shockwave altered people and some developed keen and powerful psionic powers.
They were quick to form small secret groups as, at first, they were hunted down by the governments for experimentation purpose. Small groups grew and now Psionists are not hunted anymore. Some work directly in the military, other are freelance mercenaries, some just want to be left in peace and discover their powers.
While most Psionists share similar powers, there are some that ‘’specialize’’ in some way. You have your strong telepaths or those adept in telekinesis, you have those that can project a force from their bodies and some even capable of flight. But the most powerful of all are called the Liches.
Psionist Liches are able to harness the energetic potential of living beings. They can siphon the heat from the body and slow their opponents. Some can even use the electric potential from their body to speed themselves up or increase the electricity generated by someone or even a machine to temporarily paralyze it. The strongest ones can drain psionic force from their victims and empower themselves, their aura and powers growing to a point where some can project energy blast without use of a crystal.
