Supernatural Sunday: Demons of The Watchtower – Poltergeists

coollogo_com-772150In PROPECIES OF MORTALS (book five of my paranormal series), two characters come in contact with the poltergeists chained up in the sub-basement of Terin Global. I first mentioned these creatures back in book three OF COVENS AND PACKS…

The basement and sub-basements housed all kinds of gateways and dangerous creatures, not to mention the two nasty poltergeists chained down with spells and other magical charms.

When I first wrote that sentence, I didn’t think much about it, but as the story for book five progressed, the idea came back about what lurked in the sub-basement, and I decided maybe a character or two should check out what’s down there. Like the other creatures that I’ve created, I wanted these to be based off a real entity.

In my books, poltergeists are physical creatures that can pass through just about any material except for iron. It can make duplicates of itself and surround it’s victim or make a prey thing they are outnumbered. They feed on the life-force of humans, or will absorb a ghost or spirit. They are telepathic and can read what frightened their victim and then assume that fear. Once trapped, these poltergeists memorize their prey, allowing them to slowly feed.

Because they are a solid creature when docile, my poltergeists can be physically attacked, which is about the only way you’re going to get away from them.

A true poltergeist, some say, is a manifestation of negative energy. I found this concept interesting. The idea that our negative thoughts could, over time, produce an invisible entity strong enough to move things, is frightening and fascinating at the same time.
