Story behind the ability

Jason was on his way back from the clinic late at night when he witness a mugging in process he paniced and even tho he managed to intimidate the assailant with stating that he has called the cops and he will be apprehended the victim of the mugging was severely wounded.

When he kneeled to try to provide first aid to the guy , he saw that he had more than 6 stabs and would be dificault for him to survive until the ambulence came in time.

Being the kind person that he is he apologised for not being able to help even tho he was a doctor and as he was curcing himself and praying to god to help this man survive , while clutching his Caduceus necklace he felt a mysterious warm light engulfing him.

His mind somehow understood that this feeling he had felt could help the guy bleeding out on the floor next to him and as he touched the fainted guy the moment he checked again his injury and touched him he felt an intense pain on his own body instead his hand rupture with the same injury but the infury on the man disapeared.

With out second though and driven by addrenaline he tried to use this power to take just enough injurys to save the mans life and in the end he himself collapsed.

The ambulenced took them both in the hospital and the mans life was saved.

This event happened roughtly 1 week before his leave of absent where he was dismissed for 3 months to recover his health and to recover due to overwork.

Conner’s Perspective (The Caster)

As Conner prepares to bridge the vast distances between himself and those he’s marked, he settles into a familiar ritual with the tattooing gun in hand. This instrument, more a wand than a tool in this moment, hums to life with an almost eager anticipation. As he begins the process, not on another but on his own flesh, the needle dances with precision and intent. It doesn’t inscribe a new tattoo but activates the magic latent within him, a conduit to those he seeks.

The ink under his skin stirs, coalescing into the face of the individual he wishes to communicate with. It’s a generic face, a template that morphs to adopt the nuances of expression and emotion, a mirror to the person’s current state. This face doesn’t belong to anyone yet resembles everyone, a paradox made possible through magic. It’s a surreal experience, watching these features form and shift, their eyes locking with his in silent conversation. The connection is palpable, a thread of energy that tugs at his core, a blend of concentration and a mysterious, ethereal bond.

The Tattooed Individual’s Perspective (The Receiver)

For the person on the receiving end, the experience is equally mystifying. The tattoo that marks their bond with Conner, usually a static image, begins to undulate gently. This movement is subtle, not painful but undeniably present, like the first hint of a breeze that promises the storm to come. Then, as if the ink itself is alive, their tattoo morphs into a face.

This face, while not Conner’s, carries an echo of his presence. It’s a visage without identity, yet filled with expression, changing and responding as if part of a conversation. This manifestation is deeply personal, a visual representation of the invisible line that now connects them over distances untold. The voice that accompanies this visual transformation is clear, resonating not in the air but in the mind, a direct conduit to Conner. It’s an intimate exchange, shielded from the world, as though the words are whispered directly into their soul.

Spend an Action. Select a number of targets up to your Mind rating any distance away from you. You must have specific targets in mind, but you require only an intuitive understanding of them, such as their name, face, or Location. This Effect cannot be used unless “Connor has used Permanent Magical Tattoos on the target.”. You must actively and obviously use Tattooing Gun to activate this Effect.

You open up a line of communication to your targets, and may converse with them as long as one of you maintains Concentration

The conversation will only be perceived by the intended recipient. You must share a common language for your target to understand the message.

  • Receiving a message does not force a target to pay attention to you, and they can feel free to ignore your message if they choose. Depending on the flavor of your Gift, they may or may not be able to return to it and read it later on.
