Thinkers are a species of Empty - the memories of the souls that lie inside the Promyvion mothercrystals and can be considered fairly powerful with stronger weapon skills than a normal enemy. Like all Empty, they can associate themselves with any element, as indicated by its core glow, and it's weaknesses and resistances will depend on that element. Thinkers can be found in Promyvion - Holla and Promyvion - Vahzl, and, like other Empty, can drop a Memory certain Recollections.

Thinkers are spider-like in appearance - albeit with only four legs - and scurry across the "floors" of Promyvion.
