Mechanically this shows as +1 MDV and a single bonus die to all rolls to regain willpower from rest. This bonus lasts a number of days equal to the Dragonblooded's Essence. Used frequently a Dragonblood can quickly develop a reputation for being someone its good to talk to and will find people coming back again and again to talk and share and lay their woes on them.
