Children of Hades are capable of entering into a contract with a willing soul, either prior to their death or after meeting them as a ghost. Once a contract is made, the user gains the ability to summon the spirit into an undead recreation of its former body, formed from the earth, to fight alongside them for a time. The undead would retain all of the skills and physical abilities they had in life, including weaker versions of any special powers. When the summoning ends, or the spirit's summoned body is destroyed, the user is left heavily drained and could possibly faint. Only one contract can be held at a time.

Zoe: "What you doing" Zoe asked while trying to get a look at what Jake was doing
Jake: He turns away from Zoe, finishing his notes. "Sorry, i don't let anyone see my writings. I'm writing a song." He bites the tip of his pen in thought, cocking his head to the side. "I haven't seen you here before. I'm Jake, i realize i wasn't very formal in saying so before." He holds out his hand.
Zoe: Zoe shakes Jake's hand then says "I could help my dad is the god of music so I'm good with that kind of stuff"
Jake: "Thanks, but i don't share my works with anyone. Sorry." He says, hoping it diesnt sound too mean.
Zoe: "Why not" Zoe asked Jake
