Unfettered phantoms are the souls of the dead who became stuck in the Ethereal Plane, unable to continue on their journey to Pharasma's Boneyard due to a dominant emotion, which also drags them towards the Negative Energy Plane to become undead. An unfettered phantom desperately seeks to escape this fate by searching for a psychically attuned being to merge with. Such a merger creates a spiritualist, while the unfettered phantom becomes simply a phantom; until then, it is a frantic, shifting, desperate creature of raw emotion and need.
