Apagion (Empathic Bond)

From LSWiki

Jump to: navigation, search


You experience feelings of vibrancy, warmth, happiness, and sensitivity.
You experience visions of bright luminescence.
You experience astral visions of flows of extropic energy.


Bonding Requirements

You sense an initial eagerness quickly followed by disappointment from the glow,
like it was expecting to find an emotional depth to you that isn't there.

It is likely that some amount of empathy is required for bonding this familiar, or possibly introspection or discipline.

Known Abilities

The humble apagion is a small glowing creature composed of pure dweomer. Although it is not physically powerful or tough, it is hard to hit, extremely resistant to mundane damage, and deals extropy damage in melee. It can fly very quickly and is intangible. It is ametabolic, and cannot eat or drink. It also emits light.

The apagion appears to be able to see only by paravision, and thus cannot obtain exploration experience while being carried.

Telesmatic aura

The aura granted to the apagion by the empathic bond enables a special attack based on the consort's affinities:

A blast of chaos explodes from Aleph's body toward Tessit, but he dodges.

Energy Renegeration

This appears to begin at Very Healthy. While in the presence of the familiar, the consort gains a general regeneration ability that charges energies and chakras.

Attribute Modifications

A large bonus to Willpower, Charisma and Perception, and a moderate bonus to Intelligence.

    • As of change 7589, this bond appears to grant no charms at all through at least the resilient bond strength. Change 7589 specified that this bond lost access to "all but default" charms, so the bond may gain access to charms further in.

Additional Bonuses and Powers

Traits granted

Close to the beginning of the bond, the consort gains the Regrowth trait, which improves with bond strength at the rate of about 1/5%.

At 51% bond strength, the consort gains the Perdition trait as well as a lifesaving ability that is 99% effective in most circumstances (or less so if the consort already has the permanent Perdition trait).
