When a charm with Focus effect is played, an opponent is designated and the next x actions played by you or your allies will target him. This is a key effect in fights with multiple enemies.
Charms with Protect ability force the opposing team to attack the member who used for the next x actions.
Spirit damage doesn't reduce opponent's HP, but instead reduces the amount of charms he will be able to use in the battle.
As armor protects against melee damage, each point of Willpower will protect you against one spirit damage.
Cleanse effect describes the charm's ability to remove all ongoing harmful effects on the target, such as poisons and damage reduction.
Purge effect is designed to remove all ongoing beneficial effects on targets, such as auras and damage boosts.
Normalize effect removes all positive and negative damage modifiers on the target.

A character using a Vanish charm while under the opposing team's Focus will stop being their designated target, bringing disorder to their teamwork.
