|Q: Since a possessed TAG is considered to be an enemy, can you declare an Overlord attack to take control of a TAG in Possesed state? What happens then?|
|A: Yes. Then you would control the TAG but in Possessed state (applying the corresponding Troop Profile). If the Possessed state of a trooper is cancelled, the trooper will return to the control of the owning player, regardless of who currently controls it.|
