Default Talents after death

A ghost isn't much of an encounter (esp. for a party of Mollies), but what if this is the ghost of a Naturalist, Vet and Animal Handler locally famous for his studies of and death by the local critter of the setting?

"You can't scare us!"
"Attack, my pets!"
"Okay, we're scared."

It would probably still be no big deal, since none of those talents allow a figure to make animals attack on command. Maybe the ghost could charm any pets or draft animals to stay with it, vexing the party, but that's about it.

This sounds like an idea that has other fun ramifications. Professions of ghosts affecting their behavior and motivations. I would say a definite yes to retaining abilities, but death may have affected their grasp of the situation. For example:

A master physicker ghost. He sees your party has injured members and comes to heal them. He keeps pursuing your injured members but of course is unable to heal them. Until your party can figure out what he is after, they just see there is a tenacious ghost that won't leave them alone. Just maybe if someone is able to communicate with him they can be his hands in administering first aid, say at 1 pt per injured player.
