Luke raises his head sharply and his voice takes on a high, screechy quality not unlike a cricket or cicada's chirps. Swarms of locusts and other flying insects rise from the nearest vegetation, and the hums of their wings fill the air.


Exert your Mind and spend an Action. Select a Non-Alien Creature within 20 feet.

For the next day, you may issue specific commands to your target which they will be compelled to follow.

Your commands can be complex and multi-layered, though they must still be specific. You cannot make them obviously endanger themselves or violate their instinct for self-preservation. The effects of the command will fade after a day has passed.

  • Your commands must be directly communicated to your target in some way, though this does not require a shared language.
  • If targeting a Sapient target that counts as a Creature due to an Effect, you must succeed a contested Mind roll. You roll at Difficulty 6, and the target rolls at Difficulty 8.
  • You can target yourself if you qualify as a valid target by the other requirements.
  • Your target must be within line of sight, or within range of another sense if more fitting for the Gift's flavor.

Gideon has had reason to practice. Great reason to practice, and his latest gift had been used to push his more finessed psychic abilities to their next zenith. Allowing him to dominate the mind of these rote beasts, their simple minds far easier to command than that of the people around him and besides. It was far less of a risk to expose that you could control the mundane monsters of the world than to dominate the mind of a person, and Gideon has learned through brutal, repeated, lessons that monsters can be just as.. if not far more threatening than any man you could run into. Though in doing so he retains the classical risk of his mind melding into that of his target Gideon is confident that his mental fortitude is greater than that of any thoughtless beast he may encounter.
