Kindred of the East: Crimson Empires
Eye of Heaven's Mandate
Eye of Heaven’s Mandate, lvl 3
This rite allows a Kuei-jin to determine who have been branded akuma by the Rite of Infamy (below). (Note: this rite doesn’t detect who does and does not serve the Yama Kings,
but rather, those who have been subjected to the Rite of Infamy.)
This ritual is not performed lightly or often, only when a vampire has reason to believe an akuma is about, or a strange Kuei-jin presents herself in court. The ritualist cuts himself with a small silver blade and spends a point of Demon Chi; the spent demonic energy exits the body in a small green-black cloud. If no one marked by the Rite of Infamy is
present, the cloud dissipates; however, if one so marked is present, the cloud wafts toward the akuma and envelops him briefly.
