First Isidoros Excellency Cost: 1m per Type: Reflexive (Step 1 for attacker, Step 2 for defender) Duration: Instant Keywords: Combo-OK Minima: Essence 1 Prerequisites: None
The Black Boar That Twists The Skies is relentless in his unstoppable advance. Isidoros never retreats; instead, he will smash through his problems and come out the other side. He is brash and loud. Strife and competition are his natural environment. His titanic arrogance exceeds even his titanic form. The Sky-Twister is a creature of base desire: he is the original Beast. He is lawless; more, he is anarchy embodied. Isidoros respects no authority but might, and none within Creation or without have matched his for an Age. He crushes his foes underfoot, and their ruin is his meat and drink. Isidoros hates Fate, and by extension all systems of law. He is an iconoclast, and he holds in contempt the loyal, the pious, and the humble. He delights in disorder for its own sake and looks kindly on ambition and pride. You can hear him coming, but by that time it is too late to get out of the way. Isidoros is utterly reckless and completely self-centered, and he will not be swayed from his course. He is impulsive, but predictable. He is tireless. The Black Boar That Twists the Skies is an irresistible force. Unlike many of the other Yozis, he does not demand submission. Rather the opposite: he welcomes all challengers. He will not always play fair, but he will play by the rules as he understands them.
Isidoros' Excellency may enhance any actions taken to self-aggrandize or to beat an opponent at their own game. It may also be used to pilot any large First Age ground vehicle, or enhance a ramming action taken with any vehicle. Isidoros' Excellency may not be used to supplement any actions taken in service to another. It may not enhance any action that preserves a system of law, or any authority other than the Infernal's own. It may not be used to arrest or stop the Infernal's motion. It may enhance any action taken to oppose a Sidereal or divine agent of the Bureau of Destiny in the faithful execution of their duties, or any action taken by a being with a score in the Destiny background that furthers said Destiny. The Sky-Twister's sacred number is six.
Isidoros Mythos Exultant Cost: - Type: Permanent Duration: Permanent Keywords: None Minima: Essence 3 Prerequisites: First Isidoros Excellency
Whenever the Infernal stunts, any penalties applied to the roll or static rating decrease by the stunt's rating (external first, then internal) before the stunt dice are added.
World-Trampling Advance Cost: - Type: Permanent Duration: Permanent Keywords: None Minima: Essence 2 Prerequisites: None
Isidoros charges endlessly through the Demon City, and his rampages trample all before him to twisted wreckage. None are so foolish as to stand before the Black Boar That Twists The Skies as he moves. This Charm grants several benefits.
- The Infernal's dashes are unaffected by fatigue or wound penalties, and by external penalties from terrain type (e.g. movement through or immersion in bodies of water, mud, dust pits, tar pits, quicksand, etc.).
- Whenever the Infernal collides with something while dashing, it takes dice of bashing damage equal to the Infernal's (Essence + number of times the Infernal has purchased this Charm+the number of size-increasing mutations or other effects affecting the Infernal). Against inanimate objects, this damage pool increases by (distance in yards the Infernal had moved previously in that action). If the unfortunate object or being is destroyed or suffers knockback or knockdown, the Infernal's dash continues unimpeded.
- Mortal extras now count as inanimate objects for the purposes of Charms that damage only inanimate objects, or damage inanimate objects differently.
This Charm may be purchased a maximum number of times equal to the Infernal's permanent Essence score.
Snake-Neck Heel Strike Cost: 3m Type: Reflexive (Step 9) Duration: Instant Keywords: Combo-OK, Counterattack Minima: Essence 2 Prerequisites: World-Trampling Advance
From time to time, the great serpents Kidunga and Chikalla, lesser souls of Isidoros, will rise from the dust of Malfeas to strike at Isidoros' heels, but he is their master and smites them dead each time. In a similar manner the Infernal reacts at the speed of rage to an attack against them. The Infernal gains a counterattack at full dice pool against an unexpected attack against them.
Stone-Churning Charge Cost: 4m Type: Reflexive Duration: Indefinite Keywords: Combo-OK, Inertia, Obvious Minima: Essence 2 Prerequisites: Snake-Neck Heel Strike
Isidoros' passing is turbulent and calamitous. In his wake, space and time themselves are shredded, just as is the stone of the Demon City. This Charm may be activated when the Infernal dashes. Debris are thrown up from the surface underfoot out a number of yards equal to the Infernal's permanent Essence score, as an environmental hazard with Damage (number of times Infernal has taken World-Trampling Advancex2)B, Trauma (Essence). At first, the debris plume only causes damage on hard earth. At Essence 3+, the Infernal can cause damage when dashing across such surfaces as water, sand, or thatched roofs. At Essence 4+, the Infernal can cause shockwaves in the very warp and weft of Creation itself even when charging across thin air. A second purchase of this Charm at Essence 3 makes the damage of the environmental effect lethal, as stone shatters into razor shards, water boils into steam, and the air itself bursts into black flame under the Infernal's hooves.
Road-Shattering Tread Cost: 6m Type: Supplemental Duration: Indefinite Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious, Inertia Minima: Essence 3 Prerequisites: Stone-Churning Charge
As the Infernal runs, a wake of scab-red Essence spreads out behind-them, shattering the road and warping the ground into twisted and tortured ruin. The wake of the Infernal's passage is so ruined that it is nigh-impassable. For the duration of a single foot journey, the difficulty of any rolls to track the Infernal using this Charm becomes 0, even in a location as chaotic as the Deep Wyld. However, any pursuers calculate travel speed as if they were moving through difficult terrain.
Destructive Wake Method Cost: - Type: Permanent Duration: Permanent Keywords: Obvious Minima: Essence 4 Prerequisites: Stone-Churning Charge
Isidoros' might is so great that his every hoofstep knocks about the continental layers of Malfeas. The Children of the Black Boar may endow their own charge with a fraction of that immense power. This Charm enhances its prerequisite. The area of its effect is doubled, and the Trauma and Damage of the environmental effect increase by 2.
Sky-Twisting Hoof Cost: 5m, 1wp Type: Simple Duration: Instant Keywords: Combo-OK Minima: Essence 4 Prerequisites: Stone-Churning Charge
Isidoros was against the incorporation of Fate into Creation's design from the start, favoring a more...free-form paradigm. The Black Boar, as the ultimate incarnation of anarchy, disrupts causality and reason with his passing. In a like fashion, the Infernal can undo the meddlings of the Maidens. The Infernal makes a kick attack against an enemy. If the attack inflicts at least one level of damage, it damages destinies affecting the target in addition to physically damaging the target. If the target is currently under the effects of an ascending, descending, or resplendent destiny, then the Duration or Endurance of that effect decreases by (the Infernal's successes on an Essence roll).
Black Boar Shintai Cost: 12m, 1wp Type: Simple (Speed 1, DV -0) Duration: Scene Keywords: Obvious, Shaping, Sorcery Minima: Essence 4 Prerequisites: Sky-Twisting Hoof
The Black Boar That Twists the Skies condescends to allow his servants to assume for a time some of his terrible glory. The Infernal's form explodes into a titanic black boar, as high at the shoulder as a man is tall, with thorny bristles and eyes like fire. Their Strength and Stamina scores increase by 2 each, the increased value counting as natural Attribute scores for the purposes of dice-adders. The character gains the Wolf's Pace, Tusks, Thick Hide and Hooves mutations. All Isidoros Charms with World-Trampling Advance as a prerequisite cost half motes while this Charm is in effect, and for the purposes of said Charm, the Infernal's damage pools increase by 2.
A second purchase of this Charm at Essence 5 modifies the mutation package, with Hooves being replaced by Great Hooves and Thick Hide by Armored Hide. The Infernal's tusk attack increases its Damage and Defense by (his permanent Essence), and its rate by 2. His World-Trampling Advance damage pool increases 2 dice further. He gains 1x-1/1x-2 temporary health levels, which are lost first as per usual. A third and final purchase at Essence 6 grants him the Extra Legs and Acute Sense (Smell) mutations, +2 more dice to his World-Trampling Advance damage pool, +2 Rate to his tusk attacks, +2B/2L soak and +(Ess)B/(Ess)L Hardness.

Branding With Anarchy Cost: 5m, 1wp Type: Simple Duration: Indefinite Keywords: Obvious, Touch Minima: Essence 4 Prerequisites: Sky-Twisting Hoof
With a palm or a heel pressed to their forehead, the Infernal grants a prostrate supplicant (with an Essence score less than his own) the blessing of Isidoros. A black hoofprint sears itself onto the target's forehead, inflicting a level of unsoakable lethal damage, but leaving no visible wound. The recipient now bears a Juggernaut caste mark on their brow in the sight of those who can perceive Essence flows. For the duration of this Charm, the target is outside Fate. Astrological effects cease to affect him for the duration, and thaumaturgic divinations and astrological tracking effects automatically fail. Sidereals accumulate points of Paradox equal to the Infernal's Essence upon their return to Fate. This Charm only affects willing targets.
A second purchase of this Charm expands its functionality. For a cost of 15m, 1wp, the Infernal may also grant a mortal recipient an Essence pool of 10 motes and the use of the First Isidoros Excellency for the Charm's duration. Using the Charm in this way decreases its Duration to a maximum of six days and is a Desecration effect.
Latent Force Mantle Cost: - Type: Permanent Duration: Permanent Keywords: - Minima: Essence 2 Prerequisites: World-Trampling Advance
Even when a Juggernaut is still, their terrible destructive force waits, held back by the barest threads of restraint. For the purposes of World-Trampling Advance, the Infernal always counts as having moved a distance equal to his Move action if he has moved less.
Meteoric Descent Cost: 4m Type: Reflexive (Step 10) Duration: Instant Keywords: Combo-OK Minima: Essence 3 Prerequisites: Latent Force Mantle
Isidoros is the unstoppable force, and does not suffer being opposed by anything so puny as impact. The inertia of other things is subsumed by his infinite momentum. When he jumps off a cliff, you had better be worried about the welfare of the ground. This Charm perfectly negates all bashing damage from a fall or impact. The damage that the Infernal would otherwise have taken is instead added to his World-Trampling Advance damage pools against the surface or object he collided with. This Charm bears the Imperfection of the Black Boar.
Scorning Feeble Pasiap Cost: 3m Type: Reflexive Duration: Indefinite Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious Minima: Essence 3 Prerequisites: Meteoric Descent
Osseous Pasiap ceaselessly clutches all things within Creation to himself, binding the air itself to him in his vainglorious greed. Isidoros' might is not so little that the feeble pawings of the bitch Gaia's traitor spawn impede him in the slightest. The Infernal may make Dash actions in three dimensions for the duration of this Charm, so long as he moves along a solid surface.
