Min. Essence: 2
Prereqs: None

The exalt's movements seem as light as a butterfly, and combined with a series of tumbles, giving him the ability to evade his opponents more easily and move past them. The exalt uses his essence to make small jumps, and even seems to be floating sometimes. For the rest of the scene, the exalt can move past opponents without giving them any bonuses on attacks for doing so, as long as there is enough room for the exalt to pass through, no matter how difficult. He even can use walls and ceilings to tumble over or under an opponent if need be.

This charm in incompatible with the use of armor.


Dancing Flower Evasion</b>

Min. Martial Arts: 3
Min. Essence: 2
Prereqs: Tumbling Butterfly Defense

The exalt begins walking in a odd style, that looks much like dancing. For the rest of the scene, the exalt adds one die to every dodge pool he uses, for each mote he spends on Dancing Flower Technique. These bonus dice are applied after a character has split his or her dice pool. A character cannot spend more motes on this charm than his permanent essence. This charm is incompatible with the use of armor.


Blowing Feather Prana</b>

Min. Martial Arts: 4
Min. Essence: 3
Prereqs: Dancing Flower Evasion

The exalt infuses himself with a little essence, which seems to make him temporarily weightless, and is blown away by the wind, sending him away from the battle. When the exalt moves, and activates this charm, he may immediately move up to his essence x 5 yards away from the point he was standing (or flying), in any direction. This can cause an attack to miss if the opponent has a lower initiative than the user of this charm. This charm is incompatible with the use of armor.

Duration: One scene
Type: Simple
Min. Martial Arts: 4

The character takes on the moves of the butterfly, his movements fast, and yet gracious. His hands sometimes shaking, to distract his opponent, mimicing the flapping of butterfly wings. For the rest of the scene, the character can float up to his normal movement, with perfect mobility, and gets a bonus to any dodge pool equal to the exalt's Martial Arts score. These bonus dice are added after a character has split his or her dice pool. In addition, the exalt gets automatic successes on every attack pool, equal to his permanent essence.
