Federation Empaths are individuals with psionic abilities. The only empaths known to exist in the Metroid universe are loyal to the Galactic Federation, and helped to intercept and translate a repeating neural thread containing the message "THE SECRET TO ULTIMATE POWER LIES IN THE ALIMBIC CLUSTER"- it is unknown if these empaths possessed any other powers. The prevalence and acceptance of empathic abilities within the Federation is unknown, and it is also unknown whether any empaths exist outside of that government. However, the fact that the neural thread was intercepted by no fewer than eight other factions indicates that the Kriken, Space Pirates, and Vhozon, as well as lone agents such as Spire, Sylux, and Kanden have access to some form of empathic or telepathic capability.
