Flickering Corona Barrier

Cost: 5m, 1+wp; Mins: Martial Arts 5, Essence 3; Type: Reflexive (Step 2)
Keywords: Combo-OK, Obvious
Duration: One scene
Prerequisite Charms: Impenetrable White Shroud

With a graceful, circular motion, the martial artist stirs the Halos she carries into a flickering nimbus of essence which enshrouds her and shields her from harm. While this charm is active, the character adds (Essence + (2 x Current Halos)) to her armored lethal and bashing soak. Additionally, if she is hit by an attack while carrying one or more Halos, she may expend the charm’s power to perfectly block the attack in step 6 of combat resolution, stopping even unblockable attacks. Stopping an attack this way consumes half (round up) of Halos the character is carrying, and ends the effects of this charm. Activating this charm costs an additional point of willpower for each time it has been activated previously in the same scene.
