Who and what are Light Spirits? They're the dead. The gone and lost. The forgotten. They are the dead that didn't make it to Cross-Over in time. They're the beings whose souls are stuck, the ones who didn't make it to the other side in the few hours they get.
When you die, you have four hours to get to Cross-Over. Cross-Over is the bridge leading to Lirk, which is basically the heaven above the stars and sky. If you don't make it there, you're stuck on earth. You're inbetween both worlds, doomed to the horrible fate of being a Light Spirit.
As soon as Cross-Over crumbles for you, you begin to experience unimaginable pain. Your eyes burn red with tears. Eyes that grow swollen from trying to tear them out of their sockets. It's the same for everyone: burning, tearing, screeching, and blackness. Oh yeah, there's ton of blackness. You turn into a blind monster, limp and lifeless, during the Light Spirit transformation. But you aren't blind for long.
Soon you'll wake up and see the world in a new light. You'll be able to see every pore, every grain of sand, every little thing that you never noticed before. Oh sure, that sounds pretty cool, that is, until you have to deal with it yourself. Trust me, it's just... horrid.
