An empathy link is a telepathic contact from one person to another from a great distance apart. This comunication can occur when both persons are awake or if one of them is sleeping. When one of the person is sleeping, the other can show a virtual image of where he is through the person's dream. Both users also have the ability to sense where the other is and read their emotions. If one person dies, the other will either die as well, or be left in a permanent vegetative state. An empathy link can only be terminated if they two users are face to face.
