Essence 2 Demon-blooded Lintha Smuggler.

Virtues: Compassion 2, Conviction 2, Temperance 3, Valor 4 Personal Essence: 25 Willpower 4 Backgrounds: Ally (Roojag Ritha of the Virgin Spree) 1, Artifact 2, Backing (Lintha) 1, Breeding (Sennong) 2, Contact (Prosperous Cloud) 1, Demonic Familiar (Perronele, the Living Armor) 1, Followers (5 Lintha pirates) 1, Inheritance (Scion of the 2nd Circle Demon Kimberry’s Dawn) 4, Resources (An-Teng slave smuggler) 4

Heritage Power: Demon-Blooded may attune their senses to infernal energies as a reflexive action for a cost of 1 Willpower point or 3 motes of Essence. This sixth sense allows a Demon-Blood to perceive and recognize demons (immaterial or material), Infernal Exalted, Demon-Blooded, gates to Cecelyne, artifacts from the Demon Realm, beings enchanted by demonic magic and all other vessels or places of infernal power within the range of his normal senses for one scene. The character’s mystical senses can infallibly pierce shapechanging and mundane disguises. Only magic that cloaks emanations of Essence can hide a source of infernal power from Yozi-Kin employing their birthright.

Artifacts: Black Jade Auhzian (wounds caused by the blade bleed beetles) and a Mist Demon Tattoo

Demon Ink Tattoo: Not uncommon among the Lintha, these demon-ink tattoos contain the essence of the eristrufa, the mist-demons that haunt Kimbery’s storm-tossed waves. Such a tattoo covers the wearer’s back with swirling abstract patterns. Barbed tendrils that shift position when unobserved weave their way out along the wearer’s limbs. In its wearer’s presence, polished surfaces cloud over with condensation and grasses drip with brine. In addition to its malign intelligence and Charms, the tattoo imbues its wearer with the pervasive and terrifying aura of the demon fog.

Note: This character is meant to be an possible contact or minor antagonist but not enough of a threat to be taken as a nemesis. Characters with an Appearance of 4+ gain extra dice to social rolls against Boisterous Snake (equal to the number dots their Appearance trait exceeds his Temperance rating).
