Ghosts are the disembodied souls of either humans or other creatures that have left their bodies either by death or astral projection. Ghosts haunt the areas they died in. If they leave their haunts, they die (permanently). Dying at the hands of a ghost is an unnatural death; so if you are killed by a ghost, you become one of them. Ghosts love to sneak out from behind unsuspecting people and scare them. How a ghost scares it's prey, is that it lurks in the shadows, lying in wait. When ready, it sneaks up behind them and then it scares the living daylights out of them with either a haunting howl or a loud shriek, known as a jumpscare. Its most common scare power is following its victim from behind with its arms stretched out in front like a zombie, and if that victim dies or gets too scared and runs away, it'll haunt another one. If there are no victims left, the ghost will linger and look for new ones. But there's only one ghost that is friendly, and that's Casper.

You might think that there's no way to kill a ghost, but there is. Some can be convinced to cross over into the afterlife, leaving the physical world. Ghost are always linked to something much like items or mostly their corpse. So the best way to take down a Ghost completely is to burn that certain item that links them to Earth, destroying them, mostly you have to burn their corpse to destroy them, if cremated, they are linked to something else, sometimes a house or something they have cursed on like cars etc, if your hunting them down what you have to do is know what your up against,through that it'll be easier to kill the ghost. Remember, ghosts are not immortal. Usually when someone becomes a ghost their power or potential is more active because they are in spirit form, but all ghosts take time before they can use their power, commonly an angry spirit is driven by rage thus it's how they learn their powers faster.

Some ghosts are not ghosts at all and can be demonic.
Ghosts can phase through matter, glow in the dark, fly and go invisible. Some say they have magical talents like telekinesis and telepathy. They are also said to leave a slimy residue called ectoplasm.
Its hard to see a ghost, but sometimes you can hear them, and that's called EVP (electronic voice phenomena).
You may report in some cases, simply feeling the presence of a ghost. It's only in the rarest cases that you can actually see them. And when you do, the spirit is a full blown apparition, consisting of a misty, wispy human shaped figure visible one second, then gone the next.
