— Sarafine to Ethan through Kelting, Beautiful Creatures

Kelting, also known as the Whispering, is an ability a Caster, Wayward, Sheer and an Incubus/Succubus has. Kelting is the ability when two (or more) people are able to communicate via Telepathy. Kelting is extremely rare, only very powerful Casters, like Naturals, Cataclysts, Evos, and Sirens, are able to Kelt. It's almost impossible to find a Caster or a Mortal who is able to Kelt. It's unknown if one can communicate with two or more people, the only reason is because Sarafine was able to interrupt the single mental conversation between Lena and Ethan for a short moment.

Known Types

  • Caster Kelting: When Casters are able to communicate with another caster, a mortal, incubus, or sheer
  • Mortal Kelting: When a Mortal and a Mortal, caster, incubus, or sheer are able to communicate
  • Sheer Kelting: When a Sheer kelts with a Mortal, Caster, or incubus, alive or deceased.
  • Incubus Kelting: When an Incubus kelts with a Mortal, caster, sheer, or another incubus

He can also Kelt with Lila, his mother.
