Poltergeist

(image)

Poltergeists are evil spirits, also known as ''rebellious spells''. They usually appears when unskillful mage putting too much magic power in his spell, so its acquires its own will. In recent years mages learned how to create poltergeists consciously. This technique haven't widespread in the Alduin Academy mostly because of destruction which poltergeists caused. But servants of necromancers often resort to poltergeists. These creatures are almost ungovernable since only desire is destruct all around before they expend energy contained in them and disappear. More efficient way to create poltergeist is that ghost with special abilities can capture the spell, making it possessed with itself. Such poltergeist are also short-lived but at least controllable.
