Werewolf Shard

Description:

About

Worn by an elder lycanthrope named Brock, this necklace has fused a piece of his soul with a piece of Aurora’s. While the full power of this Artifact remains largely unknown to her, she has begun to discover some of the abilities it confers.

Powers and Abilities

Much of the shard’s power still remains a mystery to Aurora, and although she can sense that her own magic is responsible for the creation of the Artifact many of its mysteries still remain hidden to her. Calling forth the bond from the Shard is an Instant action that lasts a Scene and requires an active sympathetic connection to Brock. From what she has gleamed, the Shard confers the following benefits:
