For the ascendant master of the Link, armor and man are one, motes flowing between them as if they were a single being. Those whose blows seek to breach the martial artist’s armor learn to their dismay that flesh and steel are indistinguishable – an outer shell that hardens and heals as fast as it is cut, and an inner core that resists the blade no less well.

While this charm is active, the martial artist increases his armored Bashing and Lethal Soak by his (Essence x 2) . If his Sync value is at least equal to his Essence, he also reduces post-soak damage dice taken by one, and if his Sync value is at least twice his Essence, each time his DV refreshes he may recover one level of Bashing or Lethal damage.

This uniquely powerful bond between man and armor leaves the martial artist vulnerable to shock however. Whenever he suffers one or more levels of damage from an attack, his Sync value is reduced by one for each (Essence / 2) levels of damage suffered.
