Legacy Power: Flashbacks

“Show them what was done to me.”

A 3 Gift Traumatize Power used by Grace Cyanide, created by lumiq.


A spirit inhabits your body, and has taken a liking to you. It allows you to borrow it’s memories as an attack, projecting visions of its brutal death or terrifying burial into the mind of the target.


Choose a Sapient target within 20 feet and Exert your Mind. Your target must make a Trauma roll (Mind, Difficulty 8). If they fail, they acquire a new Trauma, chosen by the GM, and take 1 point of Mind damage. This Trauma may be removed by Powers or mundane therapy as per the normal rules.

Your target is aware that they are being attacked and can usually determine you are the one doing it. (Generally, this is folded into the Power's flavor and Description.)

If your target is incapacitated, they automatically fail their Trauma roll.


  • Right in the Childhood (The defender's Trauma roll is made at -3 dice.)
  • Induce Panic (Make a Difficulty 7 roll when you activate this Power and use the target's Trauma roll to resist. If your contested Outcome is positive, the target takes that much Mind damage. They receive a new Trauma if and only if you deal at least 3 Mind damage.)
    • Chosen Roll - Intelligence (mind power) + Influence (how potent are the visions)


  • Monstrous (Possessing this Power causes a mutation that elicits a strong, negative social response from the average person in your setting. The mutation is visible even if you are wearing long sleeves, pants, and shoes. Maximum one per Contractor.)
    • Mutation - The image of a spirit that possesses you and allows you to have this ability flickers in and out at uncontrollable times overlapping your form.


Range: 1 ( 20 feet )
