You're So Vain (Bless ••, Specchio ••)Edit

Action: Reflexive and resisted
Dice pool: Presence + Intimidation - target's Composure
Cost: 1 Wisp
Duration: indefinite

The True Heir easily rebukes the vanity of anyone who dares challenge her. The Noble may activate this Charm immediately after defeating another person in a Social contest, or outdoing them in a task done before an audience.

Dramatic Failure: The Noble is too obviously arrogant. She takes a -2 penalty on Social rolls for the rest of the scene.
Failure: The target is unperturbed by his defeat.
Success: Being shown up and humiliated by the Noble destroys the target's nerve; his fear of his own inadequacy makes him fail again. He takes the Shaken Condition [CofD 290] which he may resolve when in the Noble's presence, or when he enters a contest similar to the one he just lost.
Exceptional Success: The target is thrown off-balance. He may not resolve Shaken during the current scene, and until that scene ends he takes a -2 penalty on all Social rolls with people who witnessed his defeat.
