Project illusionary images into another's mind

"Zafrina has a strong illusory talent. She can make her target see any illusion she wants, or see nothing at all. Her range includes anyone in her eyesight."

―Entry on Zafrina's gift

Visual projection is Zafrina's power to project vivid images into another's mind.


Zafrina uses this power by imagining an area and willing her victims to see. The visions are so real that the victims can easily forget reality. Like Alec's gift, she can project to multiple targets at the same time, and, like Jane, take immediate effect.

This makes her a very useful ally during the Cullen family's confrontation with the Volturi, and is therefore a very high prize to Aro as well. This power is also similar to Renesmee Cullen's tactile thought projection.


Since her power is directed to the minds of others, it can easily be blocked by Bella Swan's ability to shield. Also, her power seems to only affect a target's sight, as Edward describes that he is able to hold onto reality by clinging onto Bella in his arms. Her power only affects those who are in her eyesight.

Similar abilitiesEdit

  • Renesmee Cullen's ability of tactile thought projection allows her to implant mental pictures into the minds of others. The differences between her and Zafrina are similar to the differences between Edward's and Aro's gifts. As Aro can read the thoughts of the one being in his contact while Edward can read the thoughts of multiple targets at a time, Zafrina can any target in her desired vicinity while Renesmee can only affect whoever is in her contact.
  • Alec's ability of sensory deprivation allows him to deprive multiple target's of their senses. However, both abilities are more potent than the other. Alec removes all senses from a victim, while Zafrina only affects their sight. But similarly, Zafrina replaces a victim's sight with a different scene, while Alec only removes the target's senses.
  • Janes ability of burning illusion allows her to incapacitate her target by implanting an illusion to make them think they are in excruciating pain. Similarly to Zafrina, this power works from a long range.
