Lauriel the Vampire Slayer
Some spirits are by nature unconnected to physical bodies. These figures are called tuurngait. Some are helping spirits that can be called upon in times of need. Some are evil and monstrous, responsible for bad hunts and broken tools. Some particularly powerful and malicious tuurngait can also possess humans. An angakkuq (Inuit Shaman) with good intentions can use them to heal sickness, and find animals to hunt and feed the community. He or she can fight or exorcise bad tuurngait, or they can be held at bay by rituals and objects; However, an angakkuq with harmful intentions can also use tuurngait for their own personal gain, or to attack other people.
