Psions use the power innate in their own minds to their advantage. Psionic abilities are hereditory, but not everyone who has them knows they have them (they are called 'latents'). In rare cases, Psionic abilities can by granted by strange outer planar entities. Why they would do such a thing is unknown.
Psions main abilities are telekinesis and controlling the minds of others. They also tend to be intelligent and have an unnatural sense of danger.
