Even monsters can stop racking up sins if they knew in some form they were disappointing someone else they loved. The Noble may use this charm if someone is in the process of a horrible act that would constitute as at least a Breaking Point for the offender carrying it out.
How the Noble appears differs from target to target. An unrepentant murderer may see the face of their mother in shame. A hunter might see the face of his deity turned away from his actions. However it appears, the Noble’s image inspires shame into the target and imposes her successes as a penalty to his actions while the target is in the Noble’s vicinity.
The Noble is free to attack her target, but her successes can’t impose a penalty greater than the target’s Integrity or Equivalent. The charm fails to activate against beings with no Integrity, and it automatically ends if the Noble is outside of the target’s vicinity or if the target succeeds in their act.
