Game system: DC Heroes Role-Playing Game

Powers and Abilities

Skull spirits are vapourous demonic beings which leech human souls on contact.


The skull spirits have haunted man for millenia, creating the malign reputation that ghosts have in folklore, although they are not in reality anything that was ever human. They are easily bargained with by summoners, asking only for a human skull per day of service, which is crushed so that they may feed on the released spiritual residue. Bleys relies on them heavily, and is protected by five of them.


A skull with glowing eyes attached to a spinal column which is enveloped in a sickly glowing green aura. It has two skeletal hands unconnected to the main body which which it claws at the souls of its prey.


Cold and dispassionate, serving only their appetites.


“Awoooooooo !”
