Unfetter the Conscious Swarm
- Amalgam: Obfuscate 3
- Prerequisite: Unliving Hive
Your swarm now exists as a projection of your enthralling consciousness, and can be commanded to possess another's body. Many unwitting enemies of the Lepers find themselves to have lost night after night of time, speaking to the efficacy of their powers, as well as their ability to hold a grudge, even for centuries long past.
- Cost: 2 Rouse Checks
- Dice Pool: Animalism + Blood Potency
- System: The user rolls Animalism + Blood Potency vs Resolve + Blood Potency, commanding their swarm of insects to invade the body of an unwitting suspect. Upon success you gain control over the target for a night, and on a crit for the duration of the story. As the control ends, the target finds themselves Blood Bound (Bond Strength 3) to the user, the vitae of the user having been forced into the victim's system by the insects invading their forms. Should the roll result in a total failure, the user takes 1 Willpower damage and must make a test against Fury Frenzy (Difficulty 4) as the target potently rejects your swarm's advances, killing them and expelling them from their skin.
- Duration: One scene
