Telekinetic Force Projectiles, also known as Force Projectiles, Force Bolts or simply Telekinesis, was a basic telekinetic ability acquired by Raziel in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver and used subsequently in Soul Reaver 2.

Role[edit | edit source]

Telekinetic Force projectiles were first featured as an earned ability in Legacy of Kain: Soul Reaver, where the ability was apparently evolved with the telekinetic abilities of the vampire Turel and his clan, the Turelim, in the Soul Reaver era.[SR1] When Raziel ventured into the Tomb of the Sarafan in Chapter 6, he discovered and fought Revived Adult Turelim, the Tomb Guardian. After he defeated the guardian a relic appeared, which granted Raziel the ability to fire telekinetic projectiles.[SR1-C6] Once gained, the ability allowed Raziel to aim and shoot a bolt of compressed telekinetic energy when unarmed (used like regular the projectile attacks of standard weaponry), which could be used to interact with the environment by breaking windows or moving blocks and to temporarily stun enemies; though not kill them, unless knocked onto a nearby environmental hazard. The ability also upgraded the Wraith-blade in such a way that when armed with the Reaver, it would shoot similar Reaver Bolts - these were apparently stronger than the ordinary projectiles, but still lacked the ability to kill outright unless imbued with elemental Fire.[SR1][SR1-C6][1][2][3] Raziel would continue to use the ability throughout Soul Reaver, initially using it to move a far away block and reach a passageway to the Drowned Abbey.[SR1][SR1-C6][SR1-C7]

Force Projectiles were retained in Soul Reaver 2 as an innate ability along with Reaver bolts. As before, Raziel could manually aim and shoot Telekinetic Force Projectiles to temporarily stun enemies or interact with certain objects or windows. If unarmed Raziel would fire ordinary force projectiles, but if armed with the Wraith Blade he would switch to firing Reaver bolts, several of which had their own special attributes.[SR2][4][5]

In Legacy of Kain: Defiance the telekinetic abilities of both Raziel and Kain are superseded and united as the common ability 'Telekinesis(TK)'. Raziel's TK is notably lessened and projectile based compared to Kain's, but would be upgraded by the death of Turel to become Enhanced telekinesis bringing Raziel's TK abilities level with Kain's. Reaver bolts were absent entirely. [DEF][6][7]
