Background[edit]

Five-Pointed-Eye has always been an industrious fellow. A prodigy at building things (especially magitechnical things) since an early age, he created a small scale warstrider during his adolescent years, which was what caused his previous incarnation's Lunar mate to notice he had returned. Since then, he has been under her tutelage, eventually groomed for rulership of Aquarius District-9, his previous incarnation's city state. Most notable, Five was one of the primary magitech engineers during Operation Wyldhand, having designed a great deal of the static defenses that were tested during the exercise. He is reputed to have had a nonplussed reaction to the loss of mortal lives during the event, though his few personal friends believe otherwise. Of course, he is also rumored to place his secret projects above the lives of mortals as well...

Appearance[edit]

Five-Pointed-Eye is not a man of elegant tastes, his style of dress being no exception to this rule. His attire consists of a technician's many-pocketted pants, a sturdy pair of metal-toed boots, a simple royal blue shirt, and of course a belt of tools and other trappings of his favorite profession. He keeps his brown hair short and neatly trimmed, and bears a pale complexion due to being extremely introverted.

(Occult) All-Encompassing Sorcerer's Sight: 6m, Reflexive (Step 1), One Scene. The Solar can perceive Essence patterns. All charms are treated as Obvious with respect to him, dematerialized and invisible creatures and effect are considered visible, artifacts, manses, and demenses are recognized as such, and creatures with Essence 4+ are automatically recognized as supernatural. Does not reveal stealthed creatures fitting this criteria. Does not void disguises, magical or otherwise, but may confer a bonus to piercing them. If the Solar makes a conscious attempt to analyze the perceived, an Intelligence + Occult roll is allowed to do so. Identifying the effects of an unknown charm or spell is difficulty 5, gauging the rating of a person's Essence trait, a demense, or an artifact is difficulty 2.

(Occult) Power from Darkness: 3m per charm+1wp, Simple, Indefinite. The Solar can utilize any charm, Solar or otherwise, that an Eclipse could learn and that he meets the pre-requisites for, so long as he keeps the motes committed and has observed the charm and analyzed it with All-Encompassing Sorcerer's Sight.

(Performance) Horizon-to-Horizon Performance Method: 15m+1wp, Reflexive, One Action. May only be activated in open sky during the day. For the duration, any Performance-based social attacks (or informative declarations) made by the Solar transmit to everyone within Essence x 20 (120) miles in every direction. Social counterattacks that require the Solar to be present cannot be used if the Solar is too far away.

(Presence) Second Presence Excellency: 2m/success, Reflexive, Instant. Adds 1 autosuccess to a presence roll for every 2 motes spent.

(Presence) Presence Essence Flow: -, Permanent, Instant. May use Presence excellencies in combos without needing to include them.

(Presence) Enemy-Castigating Solar Judgment: 2m, Supplemental, Instant. Enhances an attack, rendering it Holy and causing it to inflict aggravated damage against creatures of darkness. Also enhances social attacks that create guilt, shame, or fear, or where the Exalt uses a stunt to draw on these emotions. It renders the social attack Holy, causing creatures of darkness to treat it as unnatural mental influence that costs 1 WP to resist. The social attack halves the creature's Dodge MDV to resist. Can enhance rolls based on other abilities.

(Presence) Searing After-Image Passion: -, Permanent, Permanent. The Lawgiver chooses an emotion, one of his intimacies, or his motivation. Social attacks inspiring or furthering his passion cost 2 more WP to resist.

Can instead spend 7 motes to extend to one tick, or 7 motes and 1 wp to extend to one action. Bears Conviction flaw of Invulnerability. If the Solar has 2+ Limit, drop flaw of invulnerability, but damage is reduced to Limit / 2, rounding down.

The camp is immune to inclement conditions of alien worlds, such as the Wyld or Malfeas. Additionally, the Solar's followers suffer no ill effects from food foraged in these worlds. Upgrades Food-Gathering Exercise to secure enough food for the entire camp with one use. The second purchase makes it so that the shelter counts as holy ground, causing creatures of darkness to need to spend 5 WPs to set foot inside it unless formally invited by the Solar.

(War) Divine Transcendence of War: -, Permanent, Permanent. Reduce Essence and War requirements of War charms by 1.

(War) Heroism-Encouraging Presence: 5m or 5m+1wp if mass combat, Reflexive, One Scene. Renders allies fearless within Essence x 20 yards of the Solar (120). Whenever the Solar or an ally affected by this charm would channel valor, add autosuccesses rather than extra dice at a rate of 1 success per die. If the action succeeds, refund the spent WP.

(War) Unending March: -, Permanent, Permanent. Upon death, the Solar's po spirit does everything in its power to ensure that the Solar's army continues on as intended. A po spirit empowered by this charm retains the Solar's general charms, the ability to manifest in a form indistinguishable from the original Solar's, indestructibility save via Ghost-Eating Technique, etc, and the Solar's abilities, attributes, Essence rating, and an array of dangerous arcanoi. When a reincarnation of the Solar emerges, the spirit seeks it out and trains it in the Solar's War ability.

(War) Tiger Warrior Training Technique: 10m+2wp, Simple (Dramatic Action), One Week. If the Solar trains a unit for at least 5 hours during a week (up to 5 weeks), the unit's Drill increases by 1, to a maximum of 5.

Combos

An Industry Within One Man: Second Craft Excellency, Craftsman Needs No Tools, Frenzied Forge Within

Spells

(Celestial) Travel Without Distance: 25m, Targets the Caster or a unit of a Magnitude no greater than the sorcerer's Essence (6). The sorcerer can choose to reappear in any location he has seen before, either with his own eyes or through magic, so long as the destination is within 10 miles per Essence (60 miles) and is not warded against magical travel. The character must take two Celestial sorcery actions before being able to join a conflict. If this is interrupted, it disorients the caster and he suffers a -2 internal penalty to all actions for 8 - Stamina (6) hours. The character's arrival point is always a safe section of the destination area. If the shaping time of this spell is increased to long ticks, the caster can transport a unit of magnitude no greater than his Essence which the caster must be attached to. If the arrival is interrupted, the entire unit is disoriented instead.

(Solar) Incantation of the Invincible Army: 50m, Targets One Army. As long as the sorcerer's arms remained raised and the sun remains in the sky, units he can see receive bonuses to their Might scores equal to his Essence (6) or their Magnitude, whichever is lower. The units are considered to have perfect morale and to be composed of supernatural beings for the purposes of enemy route checks. The blessing extends to Essence x 5000 (30,000) soldiers, grouped in units no larger than legions. Clouds will not naturally block the sun during this effect, but for every hour the sorcerer holds his arms raised, he must pass a Stamina + Resistance roll or drop his arms from tiredness. If his arms do fall, he has an action to attempt another roll at +1 difficulty to renew the effect. Otherwise, the spell only ends when the sorcerer wills it, the sun sets, or the battle ends.

(Solar) Wrath of the Five Elements: 45m, Targets One Creature. The sorcerer must obtain 3 mystical links to the target (hair, blood, etc.). Once the spell is cast, the target suffers five deadly attacks, one every five ticks. Each attack requires a separate Intelligence + Occult, with autosuccesses equal to the sorcerer's Essence against the target's Dodge MDV. A perfect dodge charm lets the target avoid one attack per action. Each attack deals environmental damage (15L, Trauma 4), and no conceivable external defenses apply, since the attack comes from within the target's body. The victim applies nothing but innate soak from Stamina or charms. A target killed by this spell becomes an elemental with the same permanent Essence the victim had, serving the sorcerer for a year and a day.

Inventory[edit]

Fivefold Harmonic Adapter (Artifact 1): Installed in an artifact constructed from an "incompatible" magical material (Starmetal for a Solar, for instance), it removes the penalty for attunement for the exalt.

Starmetal Celestial Battle Armor (Artifact 5): Five's personal power armor is constructed from starmetal and fitted with a Fivefold Harmonic Adapter to assist with attuning. It comes with three hearthstone sockets, one of which much contain an inert hearthstone used to power the armor and do nothing else. In addition to its damage resistance, the wearer gains certain benefits: +2 bonus to Resistance against poison or other forms of disease, an hour's worth of breathable air, +2 Awareness (as a reflexive action), optional Essence sight which is activated by spending 3 motes in a scene and offers detection of Essence signatures, in addition to the effects of Spirit-Detecting Glance, which also pierces the cloaking fields of dragon armor, +2 Strength for feats of strength, jumping distance, and inflicting damage with attacks, doubled movement rate, 10mph marching movement rate, gauntlets and boots that can be weaponized and parry attacks without a stunt, +2 Stealth while moving (+3 while holding still), can dematerialize (spend 1 WP and 10 Essence to dematerialize as a spirit does), and enhanced healing (wearer heals one level of bashing damage per tick and one lethal per hour). +12B/12L, -1 post soak lethal damage per hit.

Atlas of the Unconquered General (Artifact 5): Provides a tactical display of the battlefield when laid flat and charged for a day with 5 motes. Adds +3 to the owner's War rating for rolls pertaining to the scanned area and/or units. User gains all the information that would be provided from the charm General of the All-Seeing Sun. Can also run a predictive simulation on any commander present on the battlefield, at the cost of 5 motes and a Intelligence + War roll against a difficulty of the targeted commander's War rating. If successful, the user may ask the targeted commander what he would do in certain situations, and can receive any answer the target desires, but they must produce their stated course of action unless they spend a WP.

Orichalcum Dragon's Tear Diadem (Artifact 2): 2 mote commitment, +1 to perception pools, +3 dice to any task that requires geomantic or occult sensitivity, and has one hearthstone setting.

Skin Like The Mountains Oil (Artifact 2): Rubbed on a character’s skin before battle and lasts for one scene. It can be used in conjunction with armor or used by itself, and it does not count as armor for the purposes of martial arts. As long as the character is wearing skin-like-the-mountains oil, it gives her skin a metallic blue-gray patina. Skin-like-the-mountains oil adds +12L/+10B to the character’s soak and provides her with a hardness of 9L/9B. Five has fixed himself up with all he needs, so the boost is figured above.

Hand of the Great Maker (Artifact 3): Spend 8 motes to activate Chaos-Repelling Pattern to attune, which raises its duration to indefinite. This artifact takes the form of an intricate orichalcum and adamant gauntlet with clockwork components and bubbling motonic condenser rods that fill with lightning-white Autochthonian Essence while worn. Has a 5-dot solar hearthstone slot.


Manses and Hearthstones[edit]

Gemstone of the White Jade Tree (Manse 3): This blue-violet cabochon glows with a pale inner light. This stone hardens the bearer’s skin; any damage the character suffers after soak is cut in half (rounding all fractions upward). This same hardness reduces the possessor’s movement speed by half, rounding all fractions down. This penalty applies to all forms of movement, but can be cancelled by removing the stone from its setting. Doing this also instantly cancels the stone’s beneficial effects.

The Freedom Stone (Manse 3): This stone is a murky blue-black, full of shifting colors. A character who bears this hearthstone can never be physically restrained, only confined. All grapple, clinch, hold and throw maneuvers against her automatically fail.

Windhands Gemstones (Manse 3): This hearthstone is perfectly clear -- so clear it becomes invisible in water. Against ranged attacks, the bearer may apply his DV (parry or dodge) without defense penalties or onslaught penalties and can parry lethal attacks unarmed.

Gem of Adamant Skin (Manse 4): This hearthstone is a glittering, flawless black ovoid. Lethal damage done to the character is automatically converted to bashing, before soak is applied.
