A Talisman is a necklace pendant, or finger ring in Ruth's case, that, once made for a spell caster, is the source of their, though some, such as Aleister and Savannah, still had powers before being given their talisman's. Spell casters can track others of their kind who have talisman with their magic, though they would need to be in the same coven. Talisman also allow the user access to coven areas blocked off by magic, such as witch catacombs used for rituals. If a spell caster's talisman is destroyed, they lose their powers and are left normal humans. Also, if a talisman is removed from a spell caster's possession, the most the can do is telekinetically move a cup across a table or slam a door.
