Killing Intent “If Eyes Could Kill”

3
The power to inflict mental trauma on a target.
Used by Harry Johnson, Created by jwesley123.
(When activating this Effect, it is obvious you are interacting with the target. )

This power does not manifest visually as a tangible aura or shadow, but its presence is undeniable, creating a heavy atmosphere of dread that thickens the air around Harry.

When Harry activates this power, those nearby might feel an unexplained chill or a sudden, instinctive urge to look his way, drawn by the oppressive sense of foreboding that suddenly envelopes him. This feeling intensifies dramatically for the target, who, upon making eye contact with Harry, experiences a deep and terrifying assault on their psyche.

To observers, there is no visible sign of the dark power at work, but the effects are unmistakably clear. They may notice the sudden tension in the air, the way conversations drop into uneasy silence, or how the target, inexplicably gripped by fear, seems to wither under Harry’s steady gaze. The interaction, though devoid of visible supernatural cues, leaves a palpable sense of something sinister unfolding, as if the mere act of witnessing it invokes an innate warning of danger.
