Nosferatu Senses The world opening up before you

1
You possess supernaturally heightened senses.
Used by Lucas Arrete, Created by leonvanderblight.

The senses of a Kindred are magnitudes more sensitive than that of a lesser Kine, and in feeding upon the vital life energies of others Lucas taps into that and revels in the enhanced sensory bouquet he experiences with every sharp sound and every crack of bone. A symphony of new sounds he can hear no matter where his prey may hide, and as he grows closer he can feel the heat radiating off them. See the flow of blood underneath their skin, ah, how it sings to him.

To claim that Lucas is ecstatic about this would be an understatement.

If you would take an Injury that would kill you, you don’t die. Instead, you survive in an Incapacitated state. Your body leaves behind a token. You remain incapacitated until the following ritual is performed with the token: Take the black heart from the corpse, and bury it in the mud from a graveyard. The body will regrow.

While Incapacitated, your only weakness is the destruction of your withered, blackened heart, and if you take Damage from it, you will die. Damage from other sources will still be dealt and can cause Battle Scars, but will only kill you if your body is destroyed completely. If your weakness is not immediately obvious, attackers may roll to discover it. After you return, the Injury that would have killed you, as well as any Injuries sustained while Incapacitated, are healed. Battle scars obtained during this time remain.
