Ghost is a computer designed by Merlin, the son of Amber's vanished hero Corwin. It physically exists in a shadow where many physical laws are slightly different or nonexistent, allowing it to function on levels an Earth computer cannot.

Ghost also has part of the Pattern of Amber incorporated into its design, allowing it to riffle through shadow like a deck of cards without actually moving. It is also capable of projecting a "terminal", usually manifested as a glowing golden hoop, through which it can project images, transport objects or people, and a variety of other uses.

It speaks with Merlin's voice, which unnerves some, and calls him "Dad", which unnerves even more. There have been only two attempts to hack or take over Ghost, both of which ended unpleasantly for those making the attempt.
