The minds from the human psy-force apprentices have been captured by the lingering presence of evil in Blue Mountain. This appears as a dragon spirit, whose force wells up like an insurgent tornado. There is a blast that erupts through the consciousness field of the planet. Plants & Animals remain unharmed, but the mental tsunami overwhelms all mental activities within humans.
After the psy-wave enters its host, it searches through the fears and incomplete identities and causes the creature to attack itself. This is the general pattern that began with the psy-teams and perpetuated through the government of Abode. Winnowill appears to be steering the course of this force. It is the evil presence known as #Mindcoil.
