This Genjutsu has various appearances, but its primary purpose is exhausting and paralyzing an opponent through extreme psychological stress in the form of personalized illusions. It begins by casting a special Genjutsu that exists for the sole purpose of concealing the ACTUAL Genjutsu attack. If this attack is successful, then Ephemeral itself can be cast on TOP of the first Genjutsu. This double-layered Genjutsu is exceptionally difficult for a single person to break free from. The aid of others is often required to succeed. The end result of Ephemeral is that when this jutsu is cast successfully, the victim is tormented with visions, voices, and faces from his or her past. The exact way in which this occurs is decided by the caster, but the overall content of the illusion is drawn from the victim's own mind and sub-conscious, and thus the Genjutsuist is not privy to what precisely is transpiring within the mind of the enemy.

A victim of Ephemeral may feel as though he or she is paralyzed for a long period of time, but in actuality the elapsed time is rather short. Even so, being held in the grip of extreme mental pain or illusionary physical torment is sufficient that it requires real physical damage to break this Genjutsu in many cases.

Note: The 'diversionary Genjutsu' mentioned in the skill desc should be assumed to be a component of the over-all Ephemeral technique. It is not a seperate skill. Thus, one should pose attempting the first Genjutsu appropriately in one's pose, and then if the attack succeeds in hitting the target, the attacker and victim should work out OOCly what the appearance of Ephemeral itself will be ICly. Do not pose the results of Ephemeral itself for the victim. The victim should determine his or her own inner fears and psychological torment at his or her own discretion. Further, it is HIGHLY recommend that one inquires OOCly with the intended target FIRST before attempting to use Ephemeral, as improper use could be seen as consent-violation. Those who abuse this skill will have it removed without refund.
