Vampire's Bearing and Humanity/Paths

Post  AST Jim on Thu Apr 18, 2013 9:03 pm

Much like a Garou's Rage, sometimes the state of a vampires Humanity can effect their bearing, to the point where it is noticed by those with whom they interact.  If your character's Humanity or Path results in such an impact, please place the appropriate notation in your characters signature.  Keep in mind when interacting with someone with such a bearing, the impression is entirely subconscious.  

Humanity 10-8: You give off an almost saintly impression that makes others feel at ease.  

Humanity 7-4: You don't give off any strong impression one way or the other (no notation necessary).  

Humanity 3-2: you give off an impression of menace that is nearly palpable.  Your presence triggers a fight or flight response with the slightest provocation.  

Path of Blood: You give off an impression of resolve.  Everything about you says seriousness and dedication.  

Path of Bones: Silence and stillness, like the dead.  

Path of Caine: Your faith is palpable.  You radiate righteousness in your beliefs.  

Path of Cathari: Seductive.  Every move and gesture suggests temptation and desire.  

Path of Ecstasy: Decadence.  Everything about you screams hedonism and excess.

Path of the Feral Heart: Menace.  You give off the impression of a beast looking upon prey.  

Path of Honorable Accord: Devotion.  You give off an impression of dedication and integrity.  

Path of Lilith: Tribulation.  You are clearly a masochist, and thrive on pain.  

Path of Metamorphosis: Inhumanity.  You are alien, with no ties to humanity.  There is nothing in your eyes a human can relate to.  

Path of Night: Darkness.  Your presence inspires those around you to recall their darkest thoughts and fears.  

Path of Paradox: Confidence.  You are where you were meant to be, doing what you were meant to do, and it shows.  

Path of Power and the Inner Voice: Command.  Your presence radiates a destiny of authority and leadership.

Path of Typhon: Devotion.  Everything you do serves a purpose, even if it's not clear what that purpose is.

Path of the Warrior: Dedication.  You are a pillar of commitment and focus.  Duty is all.

Question: for starting a path is it still going to be the  period of study before you can  make the jump?

There is a process to breaking down your Humanity and then attempting to adopt a Path.  Paths must be taught, and there is every possibility that a character may not survive the loss of their humanity.

I just wanted to take a moment to clarify something regarding path followers and their bearing.  

While some of these bearings might seem appealing, make no mistake, they are inhuman.  They reek of the unnatural.  They might not trigger images of vampires in peoples' psyche, but they come across as wrong.  These bearings are clear barriers to a mortal, or even a humane vampire, being able to relate to you on a fundamental level.

Do other supernatural beings feel the emotions inspired by the auras of the Path followers, or just their inhumanity?
