|“||I've come up with the perfect plan to defeat you once and for all, by playing upon your greatest weakness: your loyalty to your pathetic friends. Don't worry; they're safe and sound right here with me. But I don't think they're on your side anymore! It seems their allegiance now lies with me! It's funny how our friends are so quick to turn....||„|

A Brainwasher differs from a Possessor by the fact that he or she does not need to enter the victim's body to take control, and from a Corrupting Influence for the victim has its spirit eclipsed instead of turning evil, though the outcome is quite similar in all cases.
