Supernatural Merit, Lasombra Only

You have given into the Abyss and listened to your Black Heart abyss Spirit to join with it. Your awareness of the realities of abyss grants a free retest on all Obtenebration powers and Obtenebration Combination Disciplines. Additionally, this merit doubles the benefits of the Oubliette Background, but may not reduce the cost of Abyss Mysticism Rituals below 1. This merit also permits you to move between Abyss and Skinlands through the expenditure of a Willpower point. You cannot be controlled as a normal spirit through use of Abyss Mysticism or Blood Magic, but should other vampires discover what you are, you can expect to be hunted mercilessly. You suffer the same weaknesses and have the same strengths as a vampire, but if viewed with a power such as Aura Perception (V20, p. 135) the aura appears as a double-exposure, with a wavering shadow, translucent humanoid shape merging in and out of yours.

This Merit is OWbN Custom and requires Lasombra Coordinator Approval

Edge of Darkness (6p Supernatural Merit)
Lasombra Only
The touch of the Abyss still lingers upon XXXX after the time that he was merged with his Black Heart Abyss Spirit. After being separated from it by the members of the Order of the Void in an effort to save him from the dark fate he would suffer still being connected to it, he realized there were still remnants of the power of the Banished Black Heart that he still had at his grasp. This Merit permits one to move between Abyss and Skinlands through the expenditure of a Willpower Point. They also receive a free retest in all Obtenebration Discipline and Obtenebration Combination Discipline actions.

This does however come with drawbacks. XXXX is susceptible to potential possession by his Black Heart in the future until it can be fully destroyed. He is down 2 traits on any attempt to resist forceful possession by his Black Heart Abyss Spirit.

This devoted follower of the spirit of Freyja has been blessed to represent a living valkyrie: the warrior women within Freyja's Legion. By that, she has gained the ability to manifest 2 large white-feathered wings from her back; which can appear and disappear at will. They are the size of her body height when closed, with an appropriately large wingspan in accordance to her weight.

She can fly up to speeds of 20mph (double over-land speed if in combat) prior to Celerity activations, and perform aerial maneuvers with her Athletics. She can carry objects that her levels of Potence allows her to carry, at no penalty to flight pattern.

Should this follower fall away from Freyja, or disgrace her, her teachings, or her values; this merit will be removed with no option to purchase it back in the future. This is truly a once in a lifetime gift.

Innate magical Ability (5 Trait Meirt)
Life's Resurgence - 
By the expenditure of a single blood trait he can touch a mortal and take away any toxins they may have in them.  Additionally if he Spends 2 blood and a willpower he can take away much more than just a toxin. He can literally heal a mortal and only a mortal of their wounds. This also works on the dead. He cannot revive the already dead. He could save some one from a fatal wound. The body returns to its uninjured state showing no wounds at all.The healing and wound removal from mortals has a major drawback if it is a toxin he takes it on himself feeling the effects of the toxin. If they are wounds he takes on the damage inflicted on the mortal body the damage can be lethal or bashing aggravated wounds convert to lethal in the transfer. Blood can be spent to heal or burn off toxins.

If the power is used for wounds of living any kind his obfuscate no longer hides him until he has healed the wounds. When this occurs, his purple Fae eyes glow even brighter as if making him a beacon to be seen accenting his presence in the area. He even gives off a purplish haze as if part of the dreaming is trying to show thru.

This merit takes away the vampire's natural aura. When someone attempts to use Auspex: Aura Perception on the vampire, even if they're successful, the aura will not be able to be read. It will be as if the vampire has no aura at all. The only things that would show up on an aura read (if the person using Aura Perception checks) would be things like (but not limited to) the Assamite Warrior clan flaw of always having diablerie veins in their auras.
