HELPFUL TIP:

When planning a cast member's talents and skills, think about how genetics, personality traits (both positive attributes and flaws), past experiences, environment, and the character's roles (within a family, a community, and society) all factor into what strengths may form. These special qualities should tie into the story, not only to make the character interesting but also to help him achieve his goal.
DEFINITION:
One's astral body (spirit form) being able to travel outside of the body to the astral plane

DESCRIPTION:
It is believed that astral projection occurs naturally during sleep, where one’s spirit goes to another plane of existence to have actual experiences that create the basis for our dreams. If one becomes aware of being in a dream state, this is called lucid dreaming. A character experiencing a lucid dream would then be able to direct the dream, shaping what happens consciously. Or, they could push aside thoughts and emotions influencing the specific dream they are in and see the astral plane as it really is.

Astral projection can also happen consciously with relaxation and visualization techniques. Characters with this skill may be able to astral travel to different locations instantly by visualizing a specific place, meet with other beings, and receive spiritual lessons in the form of symbols to gain insight into themselves, the past, or to interpret into premonitions of future events. It is believed that the astral body remains tethered to the physical body during all travels until death occurs.
