Telepathy was the ability to transfer information from one mind to another and to hear the minds and thoughts of humans and animals without the aid of physical communication (noise or movement). Telepathy was found in some species of demon and in rare human individuals, and could also be accomplished by witches with the aid of magic. The non-reflective nature of vampires rendered them largely immune to such probing, though powerful telepaths, such as Splenden Beasts, were able to do so.
