Sense if others are being honest.
- "He can sense when people are being truthful to him"
- -Entry on Elphias' gift
Elphias didn't manifest this power by his original personality as a human, his mate and creator, Prewett, changed his personality, making him want to know the truth from everyone, including Prewett. When Prewett changed him into a vampire, this false trait became even more pronounced.
Elphias sees the truth behing every word he hears, even physical interpretation can be seen as the truth or a lie to him, much like maggie
Elphias was neither born with this gift, nor did he develope this gift naturaly, Prewett, his maker and mate, had twisted his personality when he was still human
Elphias can sense the complete truth from what someone is saying to him
Elphias can only see through deliberate lies and actions, not false statements. this makes his ability less useful than someone who can sense lies.
- Maggie, a member of the Irish Coven, and Charles, a nomadic vampire, both possess the gift to sense when others are lying.
