Aegis of the North and East

Essence 3 Terrestrial God, with Formal Celestial Appointment

Young Aegis

Aegis of the North and East is both the armor and also the armor's soul. The Least God residing in the armor have been empowered by its ritual forging and awakened into a little god of her own right. Aegis of the Northand South is born with the mind of a child - completely innocent and malleable. Under the loving care of the Circle of the North she will soon develop into an intellect appropriate to her Essence.

This new god straddle the middle ground between least god and a true denizen of the Spirit Courts. While she has celestially sanctified station she holds no titles and has no place in any spiritual court. She still resides within her item (the armor) when resting, and is destroyed along with the artifact - should that event ever come to pass1. She however has the standard generalized charm of all minor gods (such as Measure the Wind, Materialize, and Hurry Home) and some charms specifically dealing with her domain.

  • Charms
    • Hurry Home - The least god immediately returns to its domain. A least god will reflexively employ this Charm if the least god ever loses contact with its charge.
    • Materialize (55m)
    • Measuring the Wind (1m) - determins Essence trait of all living creatures within Willpower yards. Wits+Perception roll to find hidden targets (difficulty is lowered by 2 as well). Charm also determins the type of being (Exalt, spirit, ghost, etc) and it also tells the spirit whether the being is capable of permanently kill a god.
    • Sense Domain (5m 1wp): Diagnostic Armor: Used when the spirit makes a diagnostic awareness roll on Aegis of North and East. The Charm adds her Temperance in automatic successes. She is explicitly notice anything about her domain that Storyteller deems noticeable - even if it is beyond the reach of her normal senses.
    • Subtle Whisper (5m): Force those who has no right to give up the armor: Charm allows a natural mental influence against a target that have no right to claim the armor (e.g. thief). The social attach is undetectable and she can make the attack while immaterialized. Those who resist the influence with a willpower can roll perception + occult with her Temperance as EV penalties to determine the urge comes from a divine source.
    • Tracking (5m): Find Owner - She can commit 1 mote by touch on the Aegis Armor's rightful owner - if he is willing. This tag is an arcane link to the spirit. She instinctively knows the tagged target's distance and direction. If target is supernaturally concealed, spirit roll Essence+Awareness vs target's Essence + Stealth. Target can use Excellencies even if not aware of the tracking.
    • Animating Management (12m 1wp, Indefinite): Defend armor against thievery - She can possess the armor and move it as if she is wearing it. She can act with her attributes limited by Essence and abilities limited by Temperance.
      • She still have to pay the armor's attunement to use the armor
      • She cannot wear the armor in her material form since she is too small.
    • Spice of Custodial Delectation (Permanent): during any scene the armor is receiving proper care, she gains essence back. If owner, or an occultist, is doing the care and maintenance she will gain 1 mote per dot of the owner's occult skill. All other people is 1 mote per person.
    • First (Craft) Excellency: Repair and Maintain the Armor
