When they woge, Koschie gain an almost sickly appearance. The sclera of their eyes turns jet black while their irises turn a radioactive green. Beneath their translucent skin are vein nodules and, through openings in their misshapen skull, portions of brain matter that glow the same shade of green. Further adding to their sickly appearance are rotten looking teeth, which due to the Koschie's translucent lips and skin, are always visible even when the mouth is closed, and their lack of hair. Koschie can focus their woge to just their eyes and their hands.
Koschie have the ability to heal other beings of serious injuries and aliments. Sometimes the injury or ailment heals instantaneously along with any pain associated with it, while other times the pain lingers for a while, but gradually goes away over time. Koschie can also afflict people with serious radiation poisoning, which will kill the victim within a few days. The dosage is so high that the afflicted area will still be "hot" a few days later. The use of both abilities, particularly the healing ability, puts stress on their bodies and weakens them the more they use the ability. If they use their healing ability too much, it will eventually kill them.
Koschie possess superhuman strength and enhanced reflexes. This allows them to turn the tables on their attackers even if they are ambushed. Boris was able to easily overpower his assailant and throw him out of a closed window, despite being weakened by using his "touch of death." Koschie are also extremely hard to kill. Grigori Rasputin survived several assassination attempts on his life, including several gunshots, while Boris survived being poisoned and stabbed in the chest with scissors by Larissa Komarov.
Koschie are very free-spirited, in the sense that they have a very large libido and often use their reputation as healers to woo females. Using their healing abilities also "fires up" their sex drive. They enjoy drinking, they remember the names of everyone they've killed, and they can feel very remorseful after taking a life. They sometimes use their ability to heal to make up for the lives they have taken.

Ozzie, received your dispatch. Rasputin's influence over the Czarina and his call to remove Russian troops from the Front is devastating to the Allied Cause. Your plan is approved. God save King George.
