Blood Omen: Spells

In Blood Omen there were a total of thirteen spells that Kain could acquire from various places in Nosgoth. Some, like 'Energy Bolt', were essential, and he could not progress far without them.

Sanctuary Gained From: Kain's mausoleum
Kain's Quote: "The Sanctuary spell enables me to travel to my crypt, where the soil of my grave provides me respite. I often resort to this when I am weak and need nourishment."
Kain could use this to return to his mausoleum at any time, and if his Blood Vial was nearly empty, he would receive a top-up as he arrived back.

Light Gained From: A building between the Pillars of Nosgoth and Nachtholm
Kain's Quote: "While it is true that natural light weakens a vampire, magical light can have many uses indeed."
Kain could use this spell to illuminate dark areas, making it easier to locate doorways, spikes, enemies and switches.

Energy Bolt
Energy Bolt Gained From: A building between the Pillars of Nosgoth and Nachtholm
Kain's Quote: "The energy bolt employs magical force in its rawest form. A messy spell, but a potent one nonetheless."
This spell allowed Kain to launch a powerful projectile of energy against his enemies. It could also be used to trigger switches from a distance.

Repel Gained From: Coorhagen
Kain's Quote: "Invoking this spell cloaks me under a protective aegis. Whatever spell is cast at me will be reflected back at the caster, leaving me unharmed. It will only last for a short time, however, before leaving me vulnerable once more."
This spell created a magical shell around Kain. Until it wore off, he was protected against all enemy attacks, including all types of projectile.

Inspire Hate
Inspire Hate Gained From: Coorhagen
Kain's Quote: "This spell allows me to exploit the petty prejudices of man. Minor grievance would escalate to murderous rage and oh, the sweet terror when the spell wore off and they saw their hands covered with their neighbour's blood."
This spell caused all enemies in the area to attack each other for a limited time. They only confronted Kain if he got too close to them.

Stun Gained From: The Oracle's Cave
Kain's Quote: "The human mind is a fragile thing. One minor shock, properly timed, can render them catatonic and ripe for feeding."
This spell caused humans to enter a waver state, allowing Kain to feed easily.

Incapacitate Gained From: The Oracle's Cave, near Moebius' Museum
Kain's Quote: "Through this magic, I can stop my enemies in their tracks. Frozen in time, they can do nothing to hinder their own doom. Sometimes, I draw out their fate, for the added fear sweetens their blood."
This spell created a homing projectile that temporarily froze any enemy it hit.

Blood Gout
Blood Gout Gained From: A keep near Vorador's Mansion
Kain's Quote: "This spell allows me to use blood from my own body as a weapon. When struck, my enemies' blood would flow from their bodies to fill me with life. 'Tis a risk, yet the rewards are a temptation."
Kain could use this spell to form a projectile from his blood. If it hit an enemy, that enemy's own blood would be tapped to feed Kain.

Control Mind
Control Mind Gained From: A keep near Vorador's Mansion
Kain's Quote: "This spell allows me to enslave my enemies, giving me control of their bodies. When I release my grip, their bodies will shrivel and die, as I displace their souls, and replace them with my own."
With this spell, Kain could possess a human. He removed their soul from their body and replaced it with his own, taking control of their flesh. Kain's own body was protected by a magical Repel shell while his soul was absent. When Kain released his hold on the human's mind, the hijacked body died.

Blood Shower
Blood Shower Gained From: Vorador's Mansion
Kain's Quote: "Oh, to bathe in the blood of others! This spell is especially useful in the face of multiple combatants. Beware those with tainted blood."
This spell drained all enemies in the area of their blood. Kain could take blood from about four adversaries at a time. Any enemies in excess of this, but still in the vicinity, died instantly. Kain had to avoid using this spell around creatures with black or green (poisonous) blood.

Spirit Death
Spirit Death Gained From: Dark Eden
Kain's Quote: "'Tis a spell worthy of the Necromancer himself. This allows me to dissect a creature's soul from its vessel of flesh. For these poor wretches, only oblivion awaits."
Kain could use this spell to rip a creature's soul from its body, causing instant death to most enemies.

Spirit Wrack
Spirit Wrack Gained From: A cave between Avernus and Willendorf
Kain's Quote: "With this spell I can tear a creature's soul from its body, leaving its vacant flesh mine to control!"
This was a more powerful version of the 'Control Mind' spell. Using it, Kain could seize control of any enemy's body (except bosses).

Lightning Gained From: A path near Dark Eden, which can only be explored during a full moon
Kain's Quote: "With this spell I can call upon the heavens to tear my enemies apart with its explosive power. Oh, how their bodies will rupture as the scything energy rips through them!"
This spell could only by used outside, but it was arguably the most destructive spell at Kain's disposal. It brutally killed all enemies in the area, raining down multiple bolts of lightning upon them.
