They are not to be confused with zombies, demons, or the undead... the term "ghoul" can encompass many beings, but for this binding it is specifically the ghoul spirits who are the ardent guardians of sacred or hallowed ground. Ghouls are on the darker side of the Dark Arts spectrum. They usually do not act out unless someone is trespassing or disrespecting a sacred site, but they can be terrifying & frightening just for fun. They have an intense, dark energy that radiates around them like a mystic aura. They have a sometimes dark and sinister presence that easily deters any troublesome being from wanting to come near them.
As spirit companions they are protective; especially of your spirit family. They are guardians who are not afraid to employ wickedly questionable tactics in order to get results. They have an impressive presence and they can impose a dark and magnificent energy over others. They are closely bonded to the Spiritual Realm and can provide valuable resources in working with the Spiritual Realm and in communicating with spirits. They work well with non-social spirits like Wraiths or with darker spirits like Harpies.

Secret to Keeping
These Dark Arts secrets were previously not known outside of family and Creepy Hollows collectors. They are secrets discovered by Ash and he has generously agreed to share them with all collectors because having the right secret and being able to properly handle DA spirits is more important.
Caring for your Ghoul is the same as caring for any other spirit except being a creature of duality. Ghouls do not like direct sunlight. Place their vessel outside in directly sunlight to subdue them. Only use this technique if you feel they have become becoming too strong for your liking- some collectors like their spirits to be "on the go" all the time so it is your judgment call.Tags: cemetery spirit, ghoul, graveyard ghoul, guardians of sacred ground
