Well, no. Its a dummy. It doesn't have a mind to attack. And that is where most of Asia's Mastigos talents hang out.

I mean, I guess you can use Space Frayings to attack? Asia is most familiar with psychic powers though. Which is good, since you can exploit a spirit's nature to lock it out with antithetical emotional manipulation.

@Merchant of Pain: Antithetical? C'est quoi ca?

@Don Quixotes: That is to say, the direct opposite of. Spirits represent things, metaphorical and otherwise, usually with some sort of emotional resonance. You can take advantage of their dependence on emotional resonances to manipulate them: for example, when a bunch of spirits with rubber Nixon masks for faces and attack via screams of "I AM NOT A CROOK" (a spirit of betrayal, specifically by those in position of authority over you), a smart Asia can use her magic to amplify their innate natures into literally backstabbing each other.

And on the flip side, you could also bombard them with emotions of trust and/or feelings of loyalty. It might not cause more damage than just bringing on the mindblasts, but it could also have a chance of jamming up the spirit's own supernatural powers. See, trust and loyalty are antithetical concepts to betrayal.
