Legacy Power: Inquisition

To find what is not there

A 1 Gift Investigate Individual Power used by Athena Rush, created by Riley.


Athena is able to use nothingness as a medium to obtain information by filtering out all of the information that does not exist about the individual. The information is often a lot to sift through and it's very possible she can become afflicted with some obscure and random trauma as a result.


Exert your Mind, choose a Sapient target within Arm's Reach and spend 1 Minute examining them. At the end of the cast time roll Intellect + Science Difficulty 6. The quality of the information you receive depends on your Outcome, and the nature of the information depends on the Enhancements you have chosen.

The number of information-revealing Enhancements attached to this power is limited to 2 for Novice characters, 4 for Seasoned characters, and 7 for Veteran characters. You may still take any number of other, non-informational enhancements.


  • Conduit (You may use this Effect at unlimited range, but you require a token of your target to do so, such as a track of the target, a body part of the target, etc. One activation per token.)
    • Token Type - Any DNA of the target

  • Tracking (You may follow the target's trail, no matter where or how they have traveled. You can only follow a trail made in the past 24 hours.)
  • Killer (Determine how many living beings the target has killed, what sorts of creatures they were, and how long it has been since they last killed.)
  • Concealed (Using this Effect is not obvious. Choose a Tell that occurs only when you use the Effect; if-- and only if-- someone suspects that a Effect was used, they must roll Perception + Alertness, Difficulty 8 to pick up on your Tell.)
    • Tell - Snaps her Fingers two times


  • Exhausting (After you finish activating this Effect, you cannot move quicker than a walk (max 15 feet per Round) for one minute and suffer a -1 dice penalty for an hour. Exhaustion’s penalty and duration stacks with multiple activations.)
  • Mage (Activating this Effect requires two consecutive Actions of Concentration. It involves intricate use of the body and voice. If interrupted during activation, the Effect fails. It is obvious you are preparing to activate an Effect during casting.)
    • Activation Ritual - She has to intently study the DNA sample, snap her fingers twice, and mutter a quick prayer to Nihil.
  • Traumatic (You must make a Trauma roll when you use this Effect. Its Difficulty cannot be reduced by any means.)


Cast Time: 1 ( 1 Minute ) Range: 0 ( Arm's Reach )
