A spiritualist has an intimate link to one powerful phantom, an emotionally unstable spirit who escaped a descent to the Negative Energy Plane to seek refuge in the Material Plane.[1] They are rare and seemingly gain their powers at random rather than through study and practice. In superstitious places, a spiritualists's phantom is often mistaken for an evil undead entity. They are also commonly confused for summoners and eidolons.[2]

Pharasmins are suspicious of a spiritualist's control over a soul, with some going so far as to accuse them of being spirit-slavers. Others, particularly in Absalom, view spiritualists warily and are often skeptical of their powers or fearful of their tampering with souls.[2] Nexians see spiritualists as potential infiltrators from Geb, while phantoms are pitied in Osirion and Thuvia.

However, Ustalavs welcome spiritualists for their ability to speak to and silence restless spirits, and Varisians, Shoanti, and people in the Shackles are more common and respected.[2]


There are no known restrictions on the race of a spiritualist.


There are no known religious restrictions on spiritualists, though Pharasmins are less likely to tolerate one within their ranks.[2]
