There is no better way to be shown the truth than through force of arms, and the Champion of Legend knows it well. This Charm may be activated upon the conclusion of a battle. The hero makes a social attack with a dice pool of (Charisma + Martial Arts) with the intent of building or changing the context of an Intimacy in the target, and may choose to replace her Appearance rating with the rating of any Virtue that she could have used for a Motivated-keyworded Charm during the battle. If successful, the attack counts as (Virtue) scenes of building the Intimacy in the target. If the hero won the battle, the social attack becomes undodgeable – the hero’s ways have shown their validity through force of arms, and can no longer be simply ignored.

This Charm must be activated at the end of a battle that is in line with the hero’s motives as per the Motivated keyword. If the hero dies or is otherwise incapacitated before the battle’s end, and the hero has the motes remaining to pay for this Charm’s cost and any Charms intended to enhance the social attack, this Charm may instead be activated at the moment of death or incapacitation, instead of at the end of the battle. The hero may only use this Charm once against a given target per scene, however.
