True World Resonance

You possess supernaturally heightened senses.
Used by Iryna Vorobyova, Created by Iamangelofwar.
(This Effect has no explicit visibility requirement.)

Iryna has spent time in a dimension made of sound and resonance, really tapping into what it means to adjust between different forms of energy, like the jacket of the clockwork man, connecting it to one of her batteries and filling it with enough energy to make it new. The realm was… difficult to say the least, and her teammates even more so, but it gave her time to learn and listen. Feel for how the world works beyond her sight.

You gain the following benefits at all times.

Your senses are enhanced in the following way.

  • Thermal: You are able to "see" heat signatures within your line of sight.

  • Your thermal vision allows you to judge temperatures of surfaces fairly accurately as long as they are within livable temperatures.

The yokai Kazarisu is shaped like a long-furred body animal, similar to that of a weasel of some kind. Stretching to be around 1 foot long ending with two short legs on one end and a head on the other, its paws are long sharp claws that can easily hook into and slash at prey. The beast has a white coloration to it with a black-tipped tail, and eyes of shimmering blue, and inspects anything that comes close as it hides itself on Ricter.

Interestingly enough, no one can see it, touch, or even feel it- until someone attempts to bring harm to its host, in which it will attack with its claws or teeth, aiming to blunt the damage somewhat and retaliate. However, when his host is damaged they work to stop the bleeding in some way, using its supernaturally healing saliva to seal wounds.

You gain the following benefits at all times.

You have 6 Armor, which reduces incoming Damage. Armor from multiple sources does not stack. This Armor cannot be circumvented with Called Shots.

When you take Damage from a source which is within 5 feet, deal back as much Damage as your Armor prevented.
