AYAKASHI
Legendary creatures who live eternally in the shadows

Ayakashi are those in which the blood of vampires, werewolves, tsukumogami, demons and all manner of legendary creatures runs. When the Hazards plunged the world into darkness, these creatures saw their opportunity to emerge from the shadows in which they had remained hidden for millenia.

Why have they openly revealed themselves to humanity again? The primary reason is that many Ayakashi must feed on the life energy of humans to survive, and if they can do this without resorting to subterfuge, so much the better. Ayakashi require life energy in the same manner that humans require food. Some feed upon flesh or blood; others upon dreams or fear.

The megaplexes, once a beacon of hope in the Neuro Age, have been cloaked in the darkness of the Ayakashi. And they have no intention of once again becoming the stuff of myth.

REASON: 0/5
PASSION: 1/5
LIFE: 3/2
MUNDANE: 3/4

MIRACLE: DISAPPEAR

You are an Ayakashi, and thus an immortal creature. Since strictly speaking you are not alive, you cannot die, only be destroyed--and that is no simple feat, as this Miracle expresses.

When you use Disappear, you can at any time erase the effect of one instance of a Wound upon yourself, as if rising from the grave. In battle, you can do this immediately upon receiving the Wound and resume fighting immediately. You can heal {Death}, {Catatonia} or {Erasure}.

At this time, you may Retreat from the current Scene. No effect other than that of a Miracle can prevent your escape.

CONDITION: When you use Disappear in order to survive until the very end, the [Used a Miracle fittingly] bonus XP can be awarded. This should not be awarded if you deliberately or foolishly took lethal damage, however.

== AYAKASHI RULES == (Actually not Ayakashi exclusive, but only in the expansion)

I'll translate Thrall later but basically it's a formalized rule concerning the effect of the Charisma Ultimate Skill <<Brainwashing>> (which was erratad to refer to it)

BLOODLINES

A Bloodline skill expresses your heritage as an Ayakashi. For this reason, all Bloodlines are Secret Skills.
When you acquire a Bloodline, you also acquire the matching (Transform) skill. This does not count towards your Secret Skill limit; you may even wish to not record it on your character sheet to save space.
Each Bloodline and its (Transform) skill always have the same SL.

Note that the (Transform) flavor text is subordinate to the effect of the <<Human Form>> skill (otherwise Youkai Clan wouldn't make much sense.) For some Bloodlines, like that one, you'd better take it!
