The Charm conceals not only the pain of the target’s wounds, but any visible sign that he has been wounded. Until the Numbed Tilt fades, he appears to be totally uninjured to mundane examination, and magical diagnosis triggers a Clash of Wills. Further, if all his Health boxes fill with lethal damage, the target does not start bleeding out until the Tilt ends; the illusion serves to bind his wounds. However, the target will not notice any injury he suffers short of aggravated damage.
