|Talia Yvarai “the Celestial Muse”||3||Befuddling Kiss, Enchanting Kiss, Invisible Tongue|
Befuddling Kiss – When activated, this Blessing causes the subject to become confused and bewildered with an overwhelming tide of emotions. The subject gains an Aspect “Befuddled.” The effects last until the next sunrise.
Tag: Your opponent gains dice in any contested risk requiring your concentration or attention to details. The number of dice equals (5) the Beauty of the Fox who kissed you.
Compel: You seem confused, not able to communicate coherently, distracted by something… something… something beautiful.
Enchanting Kiss – When activated, the ven can make the target feel the pangs of any emotion she deems fit —except love. It can be anger, jealousy, nervousness, or even heart-break, but none can cause a heart to feel untrue love… not even Talia herself.
This Kiss creates an Aspect that may be both tagged and compelled. “Jealousy,” “heart-break,” “envy,” “greed,” or any other appropriate emotion. The effects of this Kiss last until the next sunrise.
Invisible Tongue – The Blooded of the Fox are taught a secret language. A silent language. A language of subtlety and treachery. A language of promises that every heart understands.
Spend a Style Point. You may communicate silently to others with subtle body gestures and lilted accents in your voice. The person you are speaking to does not need to know the Invisible Tongue to understand your meaning.

Vrental struggles not to make Romance the main aspect of all his art. He has 4 favorite pieces, a Statue of a Man & Woman embraced in a Romantic Kiss, a painting of Asper handing a small girl a flower, and a short poem expressing the overwhelming feel of a kiss, all owned by Count Aaron Q’n. There is one more piece, one which Vrental only refers to as “The most brilliant sculpture of the female body every to leave his hands.” Truth is, no one knows where such a statue is and no one has ever seen a sketch or heard a voice that describes the female.
Azoth Steele, once helped take down a vicious Ork plaguing Castle Lovelourn when Pen’Reail was unavailable. In trade, Vrental wrote a compelling letter to Itterian Steele on his behalf. The letter was such that Azoth has often offered to kill the orks that plague Lovelourn.
Lady Tanith Yvarai, one of Vrental’s most favored cousins. Vrental has spent lot’s of time with her over the years, and she still has much to teach him about beauty. The close family relation between Tanith and Vrental has been a boon for Vrentals freind, and cousin, Pen’Reail.
Feyla Mwrr, a long time close friend of Vrental. Vrental often trades his poetry for small favors of rituals and sorcery. Their freindship slowly burned while Sojan was entertaining her heart. Now that Sojan ruthlessly broke her heart, Feyla and Vrental have been drawn closer together, possibly smoldering a long, barely burning coal of romance.
Fyx Mwrr, Vrental often trades poems, paintings, and other personalized artwork for a ritual casting. This relation allows Vrental access to Serpent Sorceries he is not allowed to cast himself. Especially the Blooded Ritual.
