Augment: This power may be augmented in one of the
following ways.

1. By spending an additional 4 power points, any target
that fails its Will save is panicked instead of frightened.

any target that succeeds on its Will save be shaken for an
additional round.
3. For every 4 additional power points you spend, you
increase the radius of this power by 5 feet.

You draw on ghostly essences to cause horrific apparent
changes to take place in the environment, such as people
appearing dead or rotting, walls peeling or bleeding, and
food decaying. This power has different effects based on
how close creatures are to the affected area. Multiple
effects stack - for example, if a creature is inside the area,
they are also affected as if they were within 30 feet, 10
feet, and inside the area. If a creature would be affected
by more than one if the following effects, it makes saves
against each effect separately, in order.

Within 30 feet: Creatures within 30 feet of the affected
area must succeed at a Will save or suffer a -2 penalty on
saves against any of your other mind-affecting powers
for as long as they remain within 30 feet of the affected
area, and one minute thereafter.

Within 10 feet: Creatures within 10 feet of the affected
area must succeed at a Will save or become shaken for
as long as they remain within 10 feet of the affected area,
and one minute thereafter.

Inside: Creatures that are inside the affected area must
succeed at a Will save or be frightened for as long as they
remain within the affected area, and 5 rounds thereafter.

Augment: By spending an additional 6 power points,
all creatures within the area that fail their save also
become confused for as long as they remain within the
affected area.

Discipline: Athanatism [death]; Level: Dread 2, psion/wilder 1
Display: Mental
Manifesting Time: 1 standard action
Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
Target: One conscious, willing, and living target
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None and Fort negates; see text; Power
Resistance: No and yes; see text
Power Points: 3 (dread), 1 (psion/wilder)

Your powers can grant the final mercy to those
suffering. The target dies immediately. Any triggered
effects that would normally activate on the target’s death
do not activate, and the target cannot be raised from the
dead by any means. A target killed by this power does
not become undead when it dies. If the target is coerced
or compelled in any way, this power fails.

Augment: This power may be augmented in one of the
following ways.

1. You may expend your psionic focus to have only
effects of your choice trigger when the target dies.

2. By spending an additional 10 power points, the
target does not have to be willing or conscious. This
power has a range of touch, and the target receives
a Fortitude save to resist its effects (as well as power
resistance, if applicable).

3. By spending an additional 4 power points, the
target can be a willing undead creature. The target is
completely destroyed, releasing its soul to be raised as

In addition, for every two power points spent
augmenting this power, increase the power’s save DC by 1.

Zelic of Jair has long lived in Absalom for almost a century, though very few know his name, and fewer still would recognize his face.

The only surviving child of a dastardly pair of Norgorber cultists, Zelic's soul was long ago promised to dark forces far beyond his understanding, and by the time this haunted soul had taken up residence in Absalom, death has been his only constant companion for years. He'd paid his way to the City at the Center of the World by doing the only thing he'd been trained to do: honoring his god by delivering on assassination contracts, and sought sanctuary here- the only place he knew Norgorber to be tolerated. Here, he figured, he stood the best chance of surviving long enough to find a way to save his soul.

He spent a decade of more honing his craft with the other followers of Norgorber, skirting the law when needed, and learning to move through the city like a ghost. He leaped from rooftops without hesitation and passed through crowds as if they weren't there. He learned to sink into the shadows and disappear from sight. After a time, he'd drew attention of his superiors, and then, their superiors.

Once he'd drawn the attention of the Jair Vampires, Zelic found himself in awe. Truly, these vampires were the ultimate state of being, and this was wonderful yes, but Zelic also knew he'd found a solution to his problem. If his soul was promised to dark forces upon his death: then he must never die. He redoubled his efforts to impress the Jair Family with his skills and dedication to their cause and the cause of their god. After a period of service, in which horrible, horrible things were done in their name, he was deemed worthy, and turned. He'd cheated death, for now...
