The power to change your appearance.
Used by Edgar Stokes, Created by Strazhari.
(Anyone who witnesses you activate this Effect is very likely to be disturbed to see your flesh run like hot wax, the faces of those you have eaten in the past bubbling to the surface & vying for control. )

By eating the flesh of humans, Edgar can adopt there likeness for a time. This is a physical transformation. If he uses any powers using his Ghoul physiology, the adopted likeness shreds where this occurs.

This is a spell gleaned from fragments of Cultes des Goules, a book written on the Ghoul Cults of 16th Century France. The process is both painful & horrific, as the flesh of the target is consumed, the body of the imbiber flows like wax, melting into it's new shape.

Take a Severity-1 Injury and spend a minute. This Effect cannot be used unless you are assuming the form of someone you have previously eaten. You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means.

You become disguised in a manner of your choosing. The disguise lasts until you either activate a new disguise, or choose to end the effect.

The new appearance may have a different sex, age, and race to your own, and you may alter height by up to a foot and your weight by 50%. Your disguise may directly mimic the appearance of a specific individual. You cannot alter your clothes. Your disguise can alter your smell, DNA, and other aspects that are not perceivable via human senses. This does not conceal you against investigative Effects. A disguise cannot affect your Attributes or other stats.

Anyone who witnesses you during this Effect's activation will almost certainly be disturbed to see your flesh run like hot wax, the faces of those you have eaten in the past bubbling to the surface & vying for control.

  • A performance check is generally required to pass with people who know the individual you're mimicking.
  • When narrating disturbing content, be cognizant of your group's tone and accommodating to those who would like to "fast forward" through the description.
