A Stain is an ability that a projector or spook can call on while in ghostly form that alters their Corpus in a horrifying manner. Stains serve as a negative reflection of the subject's personality and usually cause Spite to accumulate rapidly.

Stains can change over time if a character's negative energy changes focus. For example, a character with a need for revenge manages to find peace with themselves; their Stain might shift from a Claws, a violence-based form to Roaming Eyes, as they feel the need to constantly look over their shoulder for their former target.

Two types of characters can call on Stains without penalty. For Hues, manifesting Stains by spending two Vitality and without gathering Spite is one of the few advantages of existing in their dimenished state. Manifesting Stains using Vitality is also one of the uses of Flesh-Flux, the first-tier ability of Marrow. Marrows have the additional benefit that they can replicate Stains other than their personal ones.
