The Call I: At Level 1, once per scene, your will is sufficient to focus the thought of the dead and grant the illusion of normal interaction. You may converse in a (mostly) normal fashion with a dead person’s spirit. The spirit rarely understands its current condition, is unable to perceive its surrounding or characters other than yourself, and is prone to irrational anger or raving (reducing its initial disposition towards you by 2 grades). You must be in the presence of the spirit’s corpse, and the target may not have died more than 3 days prior. You suffer 10 subdual per minute you maintain this ability.
The Call II: At Level 4, you may inflict 1 wound upon yourself with your washaif blade (see below) to make a spirit you have summoned with you the call ability visible to others and able to perceive its surroundings more clearly. This has a calming effect that reduces the penalty to the spirit’s disposition to 1 grade and allows it to verbally interact with other characters. The spirit remains incorporeal. After 1 minute the spirit vanishes and may not be summoned again during this scene.
Washaif Blade: At Level 1, you receive you washaif blade. You are always considered to have this weapon on your person, even if it is taken from you – you may reach into a pocket or even behind your back and reveal that it is still in your possession. This weapon is an exotic knife with the following stats (damage 2d4; Error 1; Threat 18-20; Size T/1h; BLD, KEN (+4); 1 lb)
Deathwatch: At Level 2, as a half action, you may locate with precision any human corpse within 10 ft. × your Career Level and you immediately know the body’s age at death, time of death, the basic physical cause of death, and a general sense of the deceased’s emotional state at the time of death. This ability is strictly limited to humans, and some characters warped by magic, scientific experimentation, or psionic abilities may slip past your awareness (GC’s discretion).
Traditions of Night: At Level 3, once per mission during the Intel Phase, you may gain 1 temporary Mystic feat of your choice until the end of the current mission.
Cloaked in the Fringe: At Level 4, if you are successfully attacked, you may choose to become reeling to attempt to avoid the blow. Roll 1d20 + your Career level (DC 25). If successful, you are considered incorporeal at the moment the attack would have landed. You may use this ability a number of times per scene equal to your starting action dice.
Channeled Wisdom: At Level 5, as a full action, you may prepare yourself to attempt any skill check. Make the check normally, except you are considered to have rolled a result of 20 + your Career Level, and have no error range, threat range, or check cap while making this check. You may use this ability a number of times per session equal to the number of Mystic feats you possess.
