Subtle Jab


Essence 3. Waning Moon Assassin

Anima Power: Spend 10 motes to craft an illusion that makes him appear to be one other person he knows (without the need for stealing that form through tasting the subject’s hearts blood). The illusion affects all senses, and while protected by it, Subtle Jab can add his essence of 2 as a dice bonus to any social action to pose as the person he impersonates or otherwise appear trustworthy. Alternatively, the illusions can obfuscate his identity in an ever shifting mask of light and shadow that adds his essence to the difficulty to recognize him.
