Frighteners are Spectres who were once human, but were killed in very horrible, violent ways. While they may not have been cruel people in life, their anger at death caused them to become Spectres almost immediately. They tend to bear the marks of their destruction, and use methods that compliment them; a person killed in a fire will use fire to wreak havoc, or a plane crash victim will become a gremlin of sorts to cause more crashes. Frighteners are single-minded in their goals and will pursue it until they succeed or are destroyed. They are one of the first Spectre breeds discovered in Orpheus.
