The Psyche is the regular part of a wraith's being in Wraith: The Oblivion. It usually reflects the wraith's soul and state of mind at the time of their death, and exists because of the Passions and Fetters that attach it to the Shadowlands. Over time, a Psyche can evolve and adapt in order to survive the conditions in the Shadowlands. Wraiths high in Willpower and Pathos will eventually develop a strong, powerful Psyche.
The Psyche's negative counterpart is the Shadow, which fights it for control of the wraith every step of the way. There is also a rare "higher" counterpart called the Eidolon which is not considered part of the Psyche.
