  • Survival

Anima

Zenith Caste Solars’ Animas are empowered by the light of the Unconquered Sun himself. With but a touch, the Golden Bulls can burn the bodies of the fallen for one mote of Essence per body, sending the smoke (and the soul) to Heaven, and preventing the body from rising after death as a Zombie and the lower soul from rising as a hungry ghost. They are protected from, and can strike down, demons, the Undead, and other creatures of darkness. As his action, a Zenith Exalt can channel 10 Motes of Essence through his anima. He then glows with the holy fire of the Unconquered Sun and illuminates the area around him as brightly as if it were noon. This illumination extends for (permanent Essence X 10) yards. For the remainder of the scene (or until he chooses to let the effect dissipate) he gains additional lethal and bashing soak equal to his Essence against attacks by all creatures of darkness.

Their Caste Mark is a large golden disc and their Animas are bright white or gold like the noonday Sun.
