Understanding the Katsina The mage is able to see, hear, and speak with spirits as per the spell, “Spirit Tongue” (see Mage: The Awakening, p. 246). Additionally, the mage may look into Shadow if in the material realm, or vice versa, as per the spell, “Peer Across the Gauntlet” (see Mage: The Awakening, p. 247). These abilities are continually active. Most Caretakers tend to converse casually with the Shadow Realm spirits around them and the spirits, in turn, are often curious about or amused by their company. Occasionally, a spirit may offer its insight into a problem presently confronting the willworker, simply because it enjoys having someone to talk to

Soul Stone:
Though an act of hubris, Peter has forged a piece of his own soul into an artefact from which he draws power. While dangerous, Peter protects his stone well, and its existence is a well kept secret. This stone however is not intended for a demesne, as Peter knows full well the potential which can be harvested from active use of ones own soul. "A simple silver band worn on his wedding finger": While in his grasp (or at least within 20ft of him), this soul fragment enables Peter to make better use of its potential. It confers the following powers and abilities:

  • Any persistent magical effect the caster wishes to place upon his soul stone have their duration increased by two-steps in their duration scale. Making the average "scene" last around 12hours and any basic "prolonged" last 2 days.
  • Any spells from the ruling arcana (Spirit&Life) of the soul in question, add +1 to any dice pools
  • All paradox the mage would induce has the roll reduced by 1 die.
  • Once per day, at the cost of 1 willpower, the mage may make any vulgar spell he wishes to cast covert

Through the power of the Spirit Arcana ("Familiar Pact", Core), Peter has managed to seek out and bind a Rank 1 spirit to his service - both as an ally and a friend.

A familiar’s bonded mage is considered to be its anchor to the material world, although there is no limit to how far a familiar can travel from its mage. It does not lose Essence for every hour it spends in the physical world or Twilight. It must follow all the other rules concerning Essence, however, including spending one Essence per day. If it is reduced to zero Essence, it falls into slumber (see “Essence,” p. 319), but it is not transferred back into the Shadow Realm as long as the mage-familiar bond still exists.

Like other spirits, it can gain Essence by being in proximity to something that it reflects, or its mage can spend Mana points to give it Essence. The master and familiar have an empathic connection; each can automatically feel the emotions of the other. (Magical effects that damage or manipulate the familiar through an emotional attack don’t damage or manipulate the master.) All familiars have a Sensory sympathetic connection to their bonded mage, meaning that a mage’s scrying spells can use the familiar’s senses in place of a scrying window, with no sympathetic penalty. This makes familiars superlative spies. Even more useful, however, the mage can spend his familiar’s Essence points as Mana points, no matter how distant the familiar is from the mage. He can also spend his own Mana points to give his familiar Essence.
