Understanding Blood

These are Charms of Auguinare, the Blood of the Forge, Expressive Soul of Amalion, the Manse of Echoes Ascending. This demon appears as an alabaster-skinned maiden with glossy black hair and eyes of liquid violet light. She has six fingers on each hand. Her blood is violet metal that swiftly hardens into whatever form she may desire, and which ever after bears the mark of her desire upon it, conveying such emotion as she instilled within it to those who touch its warm, shining surfaces. Likewise she may admix her blood with that of another, imbuing it with such feeling as fills that other’s heart. (Quendalon created this demon.)

These are DemonCharms.

When Auguinare tastes blood, she draws the passions bound in its shedding into her soul. She becomes aware of the reason why the blood was shed and of what emotions coursed through the victim at the time. In addition, Auguinare may spend one point of Willpower to gain a temporary Virtue point appropriate to the emotion the victim was experiencing. For example, blood shed by a warrior in battle rage would give her a point of temporary Valor.

This Charm is crucial to the use of certain Craft Charms further in this Charm cascade, as it provides the necessary knowledge of the emotional resonances inherent in the blood.

Blood Makes Noise Method (Charlequin)

Cost: 6 motes
Duration: Instant
Type: Simple
Minimum Compassion: 4
Minimum Essence: 3
Prerequisite Charms: Fervent Blood Awareness

It is a constant amongst all living beings: the flow of blood creates the rhythm by which they live and die; the sound of blood carries their soul's words out onto the wind. Auguinare's blood flows in a rhythm that is sympathetic to that of all beings, resonating and moving to match. Through this deep correlation of selves, Auguinare can come to understand the deepest soul of those she meets. Using this Charm upon an individual, Auguinare closes her eyes and listens intently to the resonant blood within her own body. She may make a Wits + Compassion roll, with a difficulty determined by what she wishes to learn. With one success, she may learn something the target longs for which he is acting to achieve, or a small secret. With three, she may learn of a strong regret or a great longing. With five successes, she may learn of the deepest secrets the target would not reveal, or their fondest and most terrible longings.

The cyclic resonance which fuels the ability of this Charm is strengthened greatly by the proximity of the blood to Auguinare's senses. As a result, she receives automatic successes on her Wits + Compassion roll equal to the number of levels of lethal damage the target currently suffers.

The Sound of Another - Telgar

Cost: 15 motes, 1 willpower
Duration: One month
Type: Simple
Min. Compassion: 5
Min. Essence: 4
Prereq Charms: Other Self Infusion

By feeding a sample of blood from one mortal being into another Auguinare can control the sounds of the blood within them. As the foreign blood-music overpowers their own the mortal victim is transformed into a mental copy of the one whos blood has infused him. The transformation makes only minor physical changes, but for as long as the Charm remains in effect, the victim believes himself to be the blood-donor and will think, speak and think exactly as the donor would. Magical mind reading techniques or identification by blood will show the target to be the donor.


The last "for a specific being" Relay was so awesome, I thought to try it again. - willows

Dude, Suzanne Vega references are worth double points! -TedPro

Good Charms, but I'm disappointed that there weren't more smithcraft Charms in the cascade. - Quendalon

As am I...but I, for one, am not done with this theme. More Charms, coming soon! - willows
