Curse of the Cyborg Vampire The Assassin Eternal

1
You possess an augmented or inhuman body.
Used by Ardis "Longshot" Hemmingway, Created by Merfian.
(Your specific augmentation must be physically visible in some way, but it does not need to make you appear outwardly monstrous or socially unacceptable. )

The curse of vampirism has increased the Cross-Eye's power thanks to the properties of Vitae, along with the abilities inherent for being undead as a Lasombra Kindred.


You gain the following benefits as long as your body isn't touched by sunlight.

You are permanently and visibly transformed: by having lighter skin, fangs that can retract, and a lack of a reflection. You are considered to be a Sapient, Non-Living being when targeted. Your Dexterity is increased by 1.

No single organ in your body is critical for life. If any body part is separated, it lives and can take Actions for one hour. Attacks do not get bonuses from targeting specific body parts. You cannot suffer an Injury with Severity greater than 6.

You no longer age naturally, and supernatural attempts to age you fail.

Your Injuries no longer degrade with time.

Possession of this Power grants the following Trauma at all times: Trypophobia.

The Severity of any Injury caused by Fire is increased by 2.

  • If you become split into multiple pieces, the Player controls the "main" piece, while the GM controls the others. Only the main piece can activate Effects.
  • The increase in Injury Severity stacks with any similar effects, such as the Silver Bullets drawback on Regeneration.
