Focal Invocation "Vision is the art of seeing what is invisible to others."

1
The power to sense things humans cannot.
Used by Luci Alessi, Created by Riley.

The Well and its inhabitants birth darkness, bathe in darkness, and breed darkness. Oblivion started in darkness and will end in darkness. Its various inhabitants have adapted to such a harsh terrain- Umbra was no different, and Luci's connection to the Well allows her to temporarily adopt some of those perceptive traits.

Luci's irises swell with cloudy blackness, like a drop of paint trailing down in a jar of water, turning her eyes from a light hazel to a deep black to annotate this change.
