Jer is able to effect technology with the chip in his head that has disfigured him the chip is pronounced on his head. He stares at the technology and through infrared and blue-tooth technology he is able to unlock it.

Spend 1 minute to activate. Select a Computer within arm's reach. Does not work on Alien technology. You must actively and obviously use Eye ball implant to activate this Effect. Roll Charisma + Technology, with the Difficulty set by the GM depending on the security of the system you are hacking. Sapient targets can resist by rolling Mind at Difficulty 6. The hacking roll and their defensive roll are both Difficulty 6.

If you succeed, you may issue a single command to the targeted system. This command must have a specific outcome or be a request for specific login credentials. The command you issue must be within the machine's current capabilities. For example, you cannot order a standard security camera to grow legs and walk around.

If your command does not require bypassing the security of the target (for example, typing on a computer that is unlocked), you do not need to Exert your Mind to activate this Effect, and activation only takes a single Action.

This Gift's level is capped at 2 Gifts and cannot be increased further.

On the flight back from his first contract Angus dreamt... He dreamt of a frozen wasteland scattered with frozen corpses. A fearsome blizzard scourges the area making it nigh impossible to see further than 10 feet in front of him. the bitter cold cut into his skin forming frost on his fingers, nose, and ears almost immediately. after wondering though the wastes for what felt like an eternity he saw a light flickering against the winds. He trudged through the snow towards the light, fighting with every ounce of his being to not to drop down next to the scattered bodies that he passed. as he got closer to the light the ground consisted more of bodies than the snow below forcing him to crawl over the frozen remains toward his goal. finally reaching the light he fell to his knees in exhaustion seeing, not warmth, but a laughing woman kneeling in front of him. The words said there were lost to howling winds, but a pact was made and as hands were shaken he woke up still in his seat. His palms were wet from thawing and his breath was cold enough to constantly show his breath, in particular his mouth felt jagged and fresh as if he just ate a mint with water.

Will's perception of his gift is different to that of observers, once he wants to open a lock he simply reaches his arm in and opens it. The keyhole appears to expand to fit his arm, and he believes that this is completely normal. This is done instinctually, as if it were as natural as turning a doorknob.
