The naming of the page, "Body Possession", has not been confirmed by official sources.

Body Possession is magical ability which involves possession of an individual.[1]


This magical ability allows a user to possessing bodies with another, resulting in the body slowly changing to fit the possessor's appearance.[1] Depending on the body, the user's Magic quantity may increase or decrease, though an older body is seemingly preferable.[2][3]

According to proficient user Medusa Gorgon, this involve splitting and scattering a user's own soul and they would implant their scatter soul into another animal, such as a snake. The usage of this magical ability, however, is extremely difficult and risky and normally requires a user a need to have a boost of power in order to perform.[2] Despite this however, a body possession with someone related apparently eliminates this risk and is far less difficult to pull off then posessing with any other person not related.[3]
