Twisted Confessional | Nobilis

Matzacoztlihcitloc

Imperator of the Wild

He governs three Estates: Compassion, Reflections, and Walls. His Chancel is Locus Destine.

As far as his three Nobles are concerned, their Imperator has the following qualities:

  • (+1) Soul-Twisted
  • (+1) Granted Gift
  • (-1) Untalented: Romantic Situations
  • (-1) Cold



Soul-Twisted: "Soul-Twisted Imperators give their Powers two advantages. First, the soul-shards that give these Powers their strength are impossible to apprehend. Such Powers are invisible to the Sight, even as a vampire is invisible in mirrors.Their Estate cannot be determined by any being, except by empirical observations, and only someone who cycles back and forth between Sight and normal vision can detect them as non-humans. Second, the truth cannot be forced from a Noble of a Soul-Twisted Imperator. Lies told freely and willingly can be detected only by their moral darkness; untruths told because the alternative to speech is torture or disaster cannot be detected at all."

Emotion Sight: This gift allows the Noble to see the emotions of people near him. It comes with a price, however; the emotions of those nearby tend to run a bit rampant in the Nobles' presence (Lesser Divination of Emotion, Uncommon, Simple, Works locally only, Wide variety of uses, 1 Penetration).

Cold: This means that each Noble takes a penalty of 2 MP whenever they fail their Imperator's Code, and gain no MP for service to the Wild. These are the fundamental precepts of the Wild:

  • Freedom is the highest principle
  • Sanity and mundanity are prisons
  • Give in kind with a gift received

Untalented: Mat is used to appearing to women in the form of a swan, or a bull, or taking them in all sorts of other mythological ways. He's not used to this modern, post-feminist society, and his confusion is strong enough that his Nobles are oblivious as well.
