The Kanohi Iden was the Mask of Spirit. It allowed its user to release one's spirit from one's physical body for a limited time. While free, the spirit could move at high speed, pass through physical objects, and observe events in the physical world. The spirit was invisible to anyone not using a Kanohi Elda or Kanohi Rode. Likewise, the spirit could not interact with any physical object or communicate with anyone not using one of those two masks.[1]
