Vessels

Vessels. At times a Fallen or one of their servants are caught without adequate time to locate a new body. A vessel is a temporary vehicle where the Fallen can seek refuge for a while. Sometimes in the famous case of Legion, many demons were forced to seek such a temporary refuge. When a human becomes a vessel, the demon or Fallen does not take over or denominate as they do with their long-term mounts, they simply occupy a corner of their mind. Of course this is never healthy for that mind. Nightmares, visions and insanity often are the most typical symptoms. 

​

It is not common for vessels to survive the process. The promptings of the resident demons, the trouble they get him/her into or simply the insanity itself tend to finish them off fairly quickly.
