Few beings are perfectly suited for their intended purpose. Living creatures are chaotic, full of anomalies and wasted talents. The Fire That is Genius takes pleasure in repurposing those talents toward a higher cause.
Through warping essence patterns and mentally intrusive probes, a Defiler may excise up to (Essence) ability or Attribute dots from a willing or restrained subject, refunding them as XP. This process is singularly excruciating, the subject’s body and mind being unwoven in strands of white light, and inflicts 3LhL per Attribute dot removed, and 2LhL per Ability, in addition to a flat cost of 1 Willpower, and 1 Limit.
After a target has been thus deconstructed, the Defiler may either leave them to train themselves anew in a natural fashion, or accelerate the process, adding any number of Ability or Attribute dots the subject can pay for from refunded XP over the course of a scene. A repurchase of this charm at essence 3 extends its effects to include the granting and excising of mutations.
