Requires a Vocation
Open to the Hopeful

Your character has a mission that sustains him in adversity. At one dot, when he reaches a breaking point while trying to accomplish his Vocation, he applies 9-again to the breaking point roll. At two dots, he applies 8-again. At 3 dots, he applies no quality but gets an exceptional success on three successes instead of five. If the character ever resolves his Vocation, or abandons it, he loses the Merit. The Merit can’t be taken twice - a character who gains two or more Vocations must choose which one this Merit is tied to.

Drawback: His mission is integral to the character’s psyche. Acting against his Vocation is a breaking point with a penalty equal to his dots in the Merit.
