This style is an awesome style by me, the author, because I rule.
Practitioners of Delicious Elephant Style vary in texture and flavor almost as much as the pachyderms they seek to emulate. The style's history is clouded in very mysterious mystery, though its first mention in history lies as an appendix to The Almighty Cookbook of Resplendent Might, a cookbook\revolutionary manifesto released in the twilight era of the First Age by discontent Solar chefs. Its teachings spread in fragments following the Contagion, and the modern teachings have divided into several variations dependent on the spices and sauces available in that corner of Creation. (This tree follows relatively close to the original style, but players are encouraged to flavor the style to their particular interpretation of it.)
Delicious Elephant martial artist marinate themselves in tasty sauces, trying desperately to achieve the same state of mind as a lightly browned lemon-pepper elephant steak. Novices merely soak themselves; adepts get to use salt as well, and masters have graduated all the way to pepper.
Weapons and Armor
Delicious Elephants favor either the seven-section staff or the sledgehammer, alternatively desiring the noses of their scrumptious idol or to tenderize their foes as they must tenderize themselves to truly become delicious.

The character flavors her body with Essence, becoming resilient to damage just as an elephant becomes delicious. For the turn the Charm is active, the character can absorb up to her Essence in bashing damage. This Charm is incompatible with armor.
Flavor text: Jabberwocky sat comtemplating, not wanting to write flavor text. A quick brown fox jumped over the lazy dog.
