False Life is a Dark Arcanos that creates powerful illusions of the Skinlands for the targeted wraith. At high levels, these can superficially resemble a Harrowing; however, False Life does not transport the victim to the Labyrinth, requires only one Spectre to execute, and feature no quarry or objectives a wraith can succeed or fail at. Instead, these visions can be used as temporary distractions or part of a long-term campaign to torment a wraith into Oblivion. However, False Life also generates Pathos for the user's Psyche, driving Spectres away from Oblivion with every use.

Like other Dark Arcanoi, it is exceptionally rare for wraiths to learn False Life.
