Drain Life + Withering Touch + Soul Siphon Requires a Cilia Graft from UX-120 (Leech): At least 6 individual 2” diameter hemispherical cilia “organs” must be grafted into the recipient for psychic talents to manifest. This requires that an equivalent amount of flesh be excised to form a suitable pocket. Consequently, location sites are somewhat limited. Example placement includes one just below the elbow on the inside of each arm, one directly in the bicep muscle of each arm, and one in the left and right pectoral muscles, forming a continuous contact arc against anyone grasped in a bear hug. The visible pock marks through which the cilia emerge resemble unhealed puncture wounds that throb constantly. Implantation of such grafts provides the recipient with draining Talents. Enervate (Tier 1) saps the Strength from your target, leaving them feeling drained and weak. It requires at least one cilium to burrow into the flesh and attach to a nerve cluster, dealing some amount of additional physical damage as it does so. Concentration: Necrotic Energy: Effect: Active 10 per use. Requires an Action check to touch the target. Reduces the Strength of the target by 1 at Rank 1, 2 at Rank 4, and 3 at Rank 7. Increases one of your own Attributes for the same amount drained; roll d10 (Intellect 1, Wisdom 2, Willpower 3, Strength 4, Constitution 5, Dexterity 6, Charisma 7, Perception 8, Force Majeure 9) and on a 10 choose. The Attribute benefit lasts for 1 hour per Rank during which time no further gains can be made. Deals 5 points of Health Point damage per Rank. Withering Touch (Tier 2) causes physical tissue damage where each cilium touches the skin of the target, as well as causing the localized surrounding area to “die” and leave a permanent, non-debilitating, black circular scar. This attack form can be made instead of draining Life Energy not in addition to. Concentration: Necrotic Energy: Effect: Active 15 per round. Requires an Action check, potentially incurring penalties if the target is covered in some way to prevent skin contact. Immediate 10 points of Health Point damage per Rank. Page 92
