Avatar is a term referring to individuals who gain otherworldly abilities through their connection to an Entity.
Becoming a fully-realized avatar requires an active choice on the avatar's part. Dying is a necessary part of the transformation, but the death can be either literal or metaphysical in nature. An avatar's powers vary from person to person, and two avatars serving the same Entity will not necessarily have the same powers.
According to Jude Perry, an avatar must "feed" their Entity or the Entity will begin to feed on them. This is demonstrated by Daisy and John in season 4, as they both grow weak when they will not hunt or take live statements, respectively.
Note: This list encompasses all those who have been changed by the Entities or seem to serve them in some way, whether or not they are explicitly described as an avatar. Those who have encountered an Entity can experience minor changes without necessarily becoming an avatar, and the line between humans, monsters, and avatars is not always clear, as the exact definition of these terms is a matter of interpretation.
A name in bold indicates a character who has been explicitly described as an avatar, or has spoken about their experience of becoming an avatar.

Unbound Individuals Edit
There are some individuals, while aware of the Entities and their power, who either keep away from associating with these powers, or aim to stay away from falling to a single one.
