Avatar is a term commonly used to refer to individuals who have gained otherworldly abilities through their connection to The Entities. There is no absolute definition of the term as it is a man made attempt to categorise and define the effect The Entities can have upon humans.

When asked about avatars in the Season 4 Q&A, writer Jonny Sims and Alexander J Newall state that becoming an 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 can vary from person to person, and two avatars serving the same Entity will not necessarily have the same powers.[1]

According to Jude Perry, an avatar must "feed" their Entity or the Entity will begin to feed on them.[2] 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.[3]

Individuals

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

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.
