An empath is a subset of thaumaturge who specializes in sensing other living creatures and their emotional states.


Empaths are able to track individuals and act as living lie-detectors. Depending on the skill of the empath, tracking an individual may require touching an item of clothing that belongs to the individual they are looking for. Elite empaths are employed by the New Crobuzon Militia's Clypean Guard to secure buildings for key individuals.
