The Persona of a person or
animal left on the material plane after death, which sometimes appears as a ghost
or poltergeist. These Shades
can be called forth like other spirits,
but it should be kept in mind that they only know what they knew when they were
alive, and nothing more. They also maintain all of their biases and beliefs from
that life as well. Most do not seem to know that they have died. Adepts are capable of developing a more evolved type of Persona that works so closely with its Spirit that it becomes something more upon death,
which we call a Genius, or
in rare cases a Deified Genius.
A Genius has more awareness
than a Shade, and can continue
the work of its Will beyond death.
A Deified Genius becomes
something even more.
