Telepaths are Typhons that serve as mini-bosses in the game. According to TranStar Industries research the Telepath's are Mimic's that have been 'evolved' by the Weavers. They casually float through the environment and overpower the minds of anyone unfortunate enough to be in their presence. The humans that get possessed by Telepaths are aware of this fact, but are powerless to do anything. In addition to commanding a horde of mind-slaves, Telepaths can throw out deadly blasts of psychic energy that brings Morgan to the brink of death.
Telepaths look like giant floating blobs. They have a big white circle in the middle of them, serving as an eye.
