Not to be confused with Poltergeists from The Real Ghostbusters or Poltergeists (The Other Side)


Poltergeists (also known as Noisy Ghosts) [1] are emotion-driven ghosts who target specific individuals.

History

Poltergeists differentiated themselves from other ghosts with a unique tendency to target specific individuals and their descendants. [2] It was determined the cores of Poltergeists manifested from a powerful emotion, such as love, sadness, and anger, then evolved into a blind, violent rage. [3] They also lack any aspects from their past lives and identities. [4] The simple solution was to vacate the Poltergeist's territory so that its aggression lessened sometimes to the point of dormancy. [5]

Classification

The Poltergeists are either Class 2, Class 3, or Class 5 entities. [6]

Paragraph reads: "One trait unique to poltergeists is their tendency to focus attention on the torment of individuals, as opposed to haunting specific locations---they have been even known to haunt entire family lines. (Poltergeists are able to immediately identify the descendants of anyone they have previously taken a dislike to.)"

  4. Narrator (2016). Insight Editions- "Tobin's Spirit Guide" (2016) (Book p.32). Paragraph reads: "While poltergeists are untethered to any sort of mortal identity, elemental spirits often retain aspects of any humanity they once hand, and this can be instrumental in the resolution of a haunting."

Paragraph reads: "It should go without saying that should you become aware of any spirit, specter, ghost ,demon, poltergeist, will-o'-the-wisp, revenant, shade, wraith, apparition, spook, or a heavy presence of any kind, you should first remove yourself from the area before attempting to classify or make sense of said phenomenon."

  13. Narrator (2016). Insight Editions- "Tobin's Spirit Guide" (2016) (Book p.32). Paragraph reads: "Like the poltergeist, an elemental spirit is made manifest by powerful emotion and can directly affect its environs by way of telekinesis."
