Mesmerists use astral powers to dominate weaker minds, manipulating others through enchantment, illusion, telepathic implantation, and hypnotic compulsion.[1] They are often mistaken for bards and enchanters.[2]

In the Inner Sea region, mesmerists are the most common of the occult practitioners. They serve the Umbral Court in Nidal as enforcers and spies, a practice embraced in its ally Cheliax in the form of the "Nidalese smile" and a suite of devilbane gazes. Mesmerists in Razmiran also reinforce the cult of the false god Razmir.[2]

In Tian Xia, mesmerism readily spread from tengus' naturally silent communication methods in Kwanlai.[2]
