The Seize ability allows you to take control of enemies that are low on health. To complete this challenge you need to Seize the non-gold enemies and have them fight for you. Once they’ve killed the gold enemy the challenge will end. You will unlock the Seize ability, some materials, some ability points, and the Psychic Occupation trophy for your efforts.
