Possession is when, any degree of power takes control of the mind and body of any living thing. It gives the most intense feeling as it takes control and if used irresponsibly can cause very negative effects in and around the user.

This is where possession is in full effect, it enables you to communicate or write in other languages, sometimes ancient languages, and also access knowledge and secrets otherwise unknown. The voice will change multiple times and come across in different dialects or genders. There will also be a definite feeling of being a passenger in your own body.

A possession is never an accident, it is always invited and can even be dangerous if misused. Once possessed it is really hard to rid yourself of the entity. The more common way is to go through an exorcism, but this can fuel an entity to fight for control and it wont always work. A more effective way is to evoke the entity thereby calling it out of your body then dismissing it from the ritual leaving the victim free from the entity.
