With a touch, the craftsman deconstructs any object, its every part and component dematerializing and neatly disassembling from the others to hang in the air before him, supported by a diagram-like latticework of luminous lines and notations. The smallest details are magnified, and the essential essence flows are clearly illustrated. From this exploded schematic view, both understanding and manipulation are easy to achieve.

This charm targets an object the Solar has the required Craft to create, no larger than Essence meters in any dimension, which is not physically attached to anything else or possessed by another individual. It may also target willing or helpless living creatures, if the Solar possesses an appropriate rating in Craft (Genesis) or the like, in which case its benefits are also extended to Medicine based actions performed on the target.

While the Solar maintains his commitment, the object ceases to function, as if frozen in time, suspending any ongoing processes and reactions. The exalt can then perform any normally valid Craft based action on the object – repairs, modifications, construction, and so on – ignoring all external penalties he would normally suffer while doing so, and reducing internal penalties by his Essence.

When the Solar releases his commitment, the object reassembles itself in moments, parts sliding, winding, and twisting back into place in a great storm of sound and collapsing schema-projections. The object resumes functioning where it left off, save for any alterations the Exalt made while the charm was in use.

The Abyssal mirror charm, Specimen Dissecting Touch is identical to this charm in all respects, save that it’s prerequisite is Systematic Demolition Exercise.
