Info about the species:
They we all created from the Goddess of Lost Souls, who had trouble controlling all of the negativity in the world. At birth/when young, Haunters stay with the Goddess until they're ready to go out and find their Helper Spirits. This is a long and difficult process, and many go back to the Goddess. Though, those that find their Helper Spirits become true Haunters.
Haunters are good spirits that walk about human civilization. They go around and clean up haunted spirits, kind of like Bleach, but less violent.
They also help dreams, especially those of young children. And they just go around doing generally nice things, with the help of their "Helper Spirits"
These are spirits that are locked inside of cages for the Haunters to use at will. These cages are a part of the Haunters, and the size and shape of them are able to be controlled by the Haunters at any time. The larger the Helper Spirit, the larger the cage needs to be to house them. The cages can be hand-held, put on staffs, necklaces, put in pockets, pretty much anything. And the cages don't necessarily have to be on the Haunter at all times (though they generally prefer it, as it's their safety, and where the majority of their powers come from.).
Generally the spirits are based off of where the Haunter lives- Ie: A Haunter from the city would be likely to have a rat/ house cat/bird rather than a deer or fish.
Rare Helper Spirits would include large and endangered animals- Pandas, Tigers, elephants
And Mythical creatures- Unicorns and pixies
-Cage- Haunters always have cages. They wouldn't be able to house their Helper Spirits otherwise.
-Ears- Haunters are born with pointed, elvish ears. Some are ashamed and hide them, but they all have them.
-Eyes- Haunters have the eyes of normal people except when they're using their powers.
-Height- Haunters are about the size of a normal human.
-Gender- Haunters are about 90% female. Male Haunters are rare, and generally Negatives(See below). Genders aren't really needed, as Haunters aren't born, but created.
-Powers- When a Haunter uses the powers from their Helper Spirits they gain physical attributes from them, and these attributes are transparent and glowing. Also their eyes glow slightly from their powers.
-Tattoos and Piercings- Haunters have an above average pain tolerance, so they really like tats and piercings.
They're nature/ feelings based. So they can manipulate plant growth/ air quality. They can also make someone that's feeling depressed the feelings of elation.
They're able to help dreams.
They pretty much exorcise negative energy/ bad spirits.
(This may be updated/improved upon at a later time...)
Basically they do the opposite of Haunters. Their mission in life is to cause as much mischief and terror as they possibly can. Their cages are always dark in colour and have a dark "fog" around the bottom of them. Also, they have a harder time controlling their cages, making them bulkier and larger than most Haunters.
Their Helper Spirits can be the exact same as a Haunters, and colours would still be the same and everything. Other than cages and intentions they're extremely similar. This makes it very difficult for Haunters to discern the difference between brethren and enemies.
This is a closed species, please do not try to create your own. At least without contacting me.
I may do customs depending on how they're received.
If you have any questions feels free to ask me.
