Perquisite Charms: Foul Air Argument Technique, Golden King’s Coronation
To earn the ire of a king is to invite a shame that cannot be erased. Upon handing down punishment to a citizen of his land, a Solar may activate this Charm to exile them; in spirit if not in form. So long as the exile remains within their land, they bare a mark of shame upon them that cannot be hidden, glowing gold like a caste mark upon their brow. The land will forget their name, as will it’s people, knowing them only by the mark they wear. Every citizen who sees it will know their story and be filled with a particular loathing for the wretch, incurring a penalty to all social interactions equal to the Permanent Essence of the Solar. The Solar will know where they are at all times or should they ever step foot back within their kingdom.
The effects of this Charm will endure so long as the motes spent to activate it remain committed. It will seem to fade should the exile physically leave the Solar’s land, but should they ever return it’s effects flare back up instantly.
