"Recruiter Ghosts" are the primary gatherers of souls for the EGS. During recruiting, all souls are fair game. Although the squad's traits vary extremely, recruiters generally search for lost cause souls; typically people battling depression or have become outcasts in their daily environment. Lost causes who finally earn their chance to be who they truly are make the EGS one of the strongest squads in the afterlife. There are occasions where recruiters physically reach out to those amongst the living; offering a way out of their torment and misery. In these circumstances, deaths are cleverly executed as to not make society aware of the spiritual forces overshadowing the Earth. There are rare circumstances where the EGS will purposely plan a sudden death for an individual whose traits fit perfectly into their system.
The appearance of an EGS recruiter is masked by shadows on the face and skin. Only the eyes and clothing are visible, surrounded by darkness and their own unique hue. There are hundreds of recruiters in the EGS. For one to achieve this authority status, one must pass a series of complicated spell tests. Only the best of the best are promoted. When recruited by EGS, your features may vary based on your life's interests, mental scars, and emotional traits. The book, "So, You're No Longer Living; the EGS Guide to the Afterlife" is distributed to new recruits. Although it's rare, a squad recruit can recruit a soul by performing a complicated spell.
