These unique beings possessed potent mental abilities which they would use to probe the mind of another beings and see their desires. Once this was done, they developed a relationship with the individual at which point they developed a psychic link with the person. Through this link, they would create illusionary environments which were highly desirable to the individual. This was done with only one purpose in mind; to leech the mental life energies of the person to replenish their own. It is possible for a brutal Mind-witch to drink blood of any Humans or creatures. (Mind-witches need energy for live. In the blood, there is also the energy needed for a mind-witch to live.) Though they were usually powerful telepaths, some well skilled mind witches could also develop telekinetic powers.
The only known mind-witch was S'ybll, who tried to seduce Luke Skywalker. However, he was able to break through her illusions and escape. S'ybll died when Luke drew his lightsaber to him and accidentally stabbed her.
Powers and abilitiesEdit
They have small fangs, useful for drinking blood, or simply in defending themselves. When a Mind-witch was without energy (or blood) over the course of several days, they became weak and would probably die.
