The user begins impulsively scratching their hands as if they have a tick. Their nails start being filled with dust that materalises on their palms and once it's completely scratched off the dust is carried by "the wind" and brought to the target. Exposure to the dust slowly makes the target drowsy before they drop unconscious on the spot.

Affected targets will not prematurely wake up on their own, and can only be awoken by taking Damage or nearing death from hunger, thirst, or suffocation.
