dybbuk: In kabbalah and European Jewish folklore, is a malicious possessing spirit, believed to be the dislocated soul of a dead person, escaped from Gehenna, a Hebrew term very loosely translated as "hell". The word "dybbuk" is derived from the Hebrew דיבוק, meaning "attachment."

A Dybbuk is a wraith of Jewish ancestry who was killed during Adolf Hitler's Holocaust. While nominally Stygian, Dybbuk generally have no association with the dead of Europe, instead living in their own autonomous Necropoli called the Dark Kingdom of Wire.

While wraiths, the Dybbuk are a separate culture, driven by the uniquely violent circumstances of their deaths and the environments they live in (most of the death camps are home to large nihils, with Auschwitz being a gaping maw of Oblivion). As a result, Dybbuk generally have inordinately high Angst and tend to be a bit more fuzzy on the distinction between a wraith and a Spectre.
