3.3.12   VIGILANCE

THIRD TRIAD

Vigil
Level: 1
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Story
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
With this power the child of fire is able to know when someone or something is being physically harmed. They will not be aware of what the nature of the damage is or what is causing it. The subject must be in the angel’s presence at the inception of the force. After that time, the angel can be anywhere (including Heaven) and sense the physical damage. The force can be dropped at any time.

Optional Rules
A character can only keep vigil over a number of subjects equal to his Vigor score.

Link
Level: 2
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Story
Forms: Divine (material), Hidden
Descriptions
Through this force, the child of fire establishes a link with something in the material world (person, place, or object). Once the link is established, the angel can teleport to the source of the link at will. In order to establish the link, though, the angel must first make physical contact with the subject.

Optional Rules
As with Vigil, the number of links a celestial can sustain is equal to his Vigor score.

Watchful Eye
Level: 3
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
The child of fire can now see through the eyes of a mortal being and hear through their ears. The force can only be used with subjects who are linked to the angel. While using this power, the angel is an inactive observer. He can not control the subject’s actions. During this time, the subject is unaware of the angel’s presence. There is one more stipulation to this force’s use. The child of fire must be present somewhere within the material world for it to work.


SECOND TRIAD

Watchful Spirit
Level: 4
Aspect: Knowledge
Duration: Scene
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
This force is virtually identical to watchful eye. The only difference is that it is not limited to the material realm. It can be used from Heaven.

The Vigilant Servant
Level: 5
Aspect: Power
Duration: Story
Forms: Divine, Hidden
Description
This force enlists the help of an animal to look after and protect a subject. The creature will literally give its life to protect the subject from danger. The angel has the option of dropping the force at any time. Only one vigilant servant can be maintained at a time.

Optional Rules
The type of creature the angel would like to protect the subject will determine the difficulty of the roll. A small or medium sized bird would garner a normal difficulty (20), while a large bird or small mammal (i.e. a cat) would require a difficulty roll of hard (25). A difficulty of very hard (30) could result in a large dog or its like becoming the guardian. Lastly, a difficulty of near impossible (35) would allow the angel call any creature he wanted.

Tracking Eye
Level: 6
Aspect: Understanding
Duration: Immediate
Forms: Divine, Hidden, Subtle
Description
If an angel arrives on the scene less than five minutes after another celestial has left, he can use this force to discern where the celestial has teleported to. The force works so long as the target has teleported somewhere in the material realm. It can not be used to track creatures that have returned to Heaven.

Optional rules
If the storyteller wished, the roll can be a resisted (though not consciously) with the target’s temperance (deception for demons).
