You need to disappear or evaporate or whatever it is that you ghosts do.

A Ghost is the soul and spirit of a deceased person, that can appear in a visible manifestation to the living.


Ghosts do not appear any different dead then they did when they were alive. Whenever they appear to the living they are usually seen dressed in the very same attire they were wearing prior to their deaths. However it possible that ghosts can somehow change their appearance and manifest different clothing. (Both Bonnie Bennett and Victoria Donovan where shown wearing different clothing on the Other Side than the outfits they originally died in.)

Powers and Abilities

  • Immortality - Ghosts are truly immortal and will exist forever. 
  • Intangibility - Ghosts cannot physically feel nor can they be physically felt.
  • Possession- Ghosts can control and manipulate the body and mind of a living person.
  • Teleportation - Ghosts are unbound by the borders of space and therefore able to disappear from one location and reappear in another.

Other Powers

  • Vampire Abilities - If a vampire becomes a spirit, they will still possess their vampire powers.

The Other Side

The Other Side is the mysterious dimension where the spirits of dead supernatural beings reside. It was created by Qetsiyah in an attempt to imprison the immortal Silas. The spell ensured that every supernatural being that died would come to the Other Side, instead of finding peace and moving on.
