Some characters have the ability to read, manipulate, or even control the minds/thoughts of other characters. Most often associated with Psychic Powers, these abilities run the gamut from mundane charisma/authority, to Magic and Powers, and to the paranormal. Extreme forms of mental manipulation even allow you direct access to the victim's body, turning them into a literal puppet to their will.
