is an enigmatic power that awakens within select individuals on the cusp of an Umbral Calamity
, apparently gifted to those chosen by the Mothercrystal
(though this may not be its only origin). It is believed that the Echo allows one to breach the walls of the soul
, allowing them to resonate with the souls of others. This ability manifests in such ways as being able to see another's memories, or communicate with them a languages of which the gifted has no prior knowledge.
Many who are woken claim to have witnessed a brilliant starshower or heard a disembodied voice whisper, "Hear, Feel, Think." The strength of the Echo and the ways in which it manifests vary by individual—all, however, appear to be immune to the effects of Tempering by Primals
. In some of a Warrior of Light's most arduous trials, the Echo manifests as a status effect
, lending them Hydaelyn's strength in their times of greatest need.
