Dead Spider's Webs
Level Two Soulsteel Claws; 6m
If asked, The Herald states that the pair of soulsteel blades that were inserted into her arms were a gift from her Master. She then often uses them on the asker, allowing the thin soulsteel chains attached to the blades to give her additional reach. The soulsteel itself was created from nephwracks, and small red flecks dance along the soulsteel as the blades are used, eliciting horrifying cackling from the shades within. The claws have the stats of the ranged attack of the Gauntlet of Distant Claws, with a range of 15 yards.
Level Four Soulsteel Tattoos
Yet another gift from her Master, these soulsteel tatoos are a mockery of those seen on the Lunar Exalted; the tattoos follow patterns that cause the eyes to ache, and faces occasionally appear in the dull gray metal. These tattoos offer the Herald the benefits of the Moonshadow anima against creatures of death.
Soulsteel Skin Mount Amulet
Level Two Hearthstone Amulet
The amulet is easily seen on the back of her neck, acting as an anchor for the soulsteel that makes up Oblivion's Bulwalk. It currently houses a Splinter of the Somber Domain.
Merits and Flaws
Disturbing (2F): Living in the Labyrinth for two years does that to you.
Known Anathema (2F): On the way to The Thousand, The Herald made a bit of a show in Chiaroscuro involving a number of hungry ghosts. A number of Immaculates were present, and have been keeping an eye out for her since.
Sterile (1F): No true servant of the Neverborn shall bear a child.
Sun-Seared (2F): The Light of the First Usurper is harsh to the Herald, and she shuns his touch whenever possible.
Unusual Appearance (2F): No explanation needed, really.
