A Beguiler is an elf whose special ability is to manipulate others through their vocal tones. It is somewhat like being a Mesmer, but Beguilers affect emotions and not just actions. Like Telepaths, Beguilers have restrictions to ensure they don't use their abilities for illicit purposes.
Unlike Mesmers, who can only affect the body, and not the mind or willingness, Beguilers can soothe a person into doing something willingly but not always make them act.
“Beguilers only add to the mind, amplifying existing thoughts and feelings to manipulate people. They can't take anything away.”
