Ethereal Abilities
Ability Description
Devastate an area with a storm of psi energy. The rift does more damage against targets with low Will, and reduced damage against targets with high Will. 4 turn cooldown.
It has the potential to do from 4 damage (if resisted) to 20+ (to S.H.I.V.s, since they have no will to resist.) Rift will persist on the map for one turn and damage anything that enters its radius.
Psi Lance
Project a bolt of pure psi force at an enemy.
9 damage
Psi Drain
Drain health from an ally.
Mind Fray
Causes the target to lose grip on reality, inflicting penalties to Aim, Will, and mobility, and doing 5 base damage. Robotic units are immune. Lasts 2 turns. 1 turn cooldown.
Mind Control
Very difficult psi technique that, if successful, grants control of the target for 5 turns. Robotic enemies are immune. 5 turn cooldown.
Confers extra protection against critical hits. Enemies suffer a -60% chance to inflict critical hits.


  • High Will: resistant to psionic attacks (and outright immune to Mind Control).
  • The Uber Ethereal will explode upon death, dealing damage to all units within a fairly small radius. (Not like it will matter, as you win the game when it dies.)
  • The Uber Ethereal can not be stunned.
