Known Abilities

The elicat is a handsome little feline creature, differing from a purely mundane cat in that it sports a pair of feathery wings, with which it can fly. Like all felines, it is a predator, attacking with claws and teeth with a ferocity that belies its small size. It breathes air and has high night vision.

Sahasrara Chakra

An elicat familiar automatically grants and charges the Sahasrara (violet) chakra, which grants bonuses to willpower, various skill bonuses, and also grants the trait Wingless Flight when fully charged.

Petting the familiar

You pet the white-winged orange tabby female elicat with your right hand.
You sense holy, life-giving energies flowing from a white-winged orange tabby female
elicat's body into your spirit.

This provides a temporary bonus to the skills entropy resistance, Extropy Affinity, magick resistance, qlippotic resistance, and sephirotic affinity. It also restores 1 spell point.

Attribute Modifications

The elicat grants its consort very large bonuses in willpower and perception, a moderate bonus in agility, and a small bonus in ego.

Additional Bonuses and Powers

Combat Maneuvers

At "robust" bond strength, a new attack maneuver is added, called "Flare of Angelic Power". It is fueled by Extropic and Holy resource energy obtained via the Convert charm, and appears to do holy damage, probably mixed with some extropic. Note that the capacities of these resource points are governed by their related affinities and magickal skill; the Holy resource is governed by Kalaturgy and Sephirotic Affinity, and the Extropic resource is governed by Extropy Affinity and Viturgy. It can be fired with the 'perform special attack' command.

Wings

At "deep" bond strength, the consort sprouts a pair of wings:

You sense a strange resonance between you and Cutie, followed immediately by you feeling
something rising up within your chest and bursting violently out of your back.

A seemingly functional feathery white right wing suddenly bursts outwards from your back.

You sense a strange resonance between you and Cutie, followed immediately by you feeling
something rising up within your chest and bursting violently out of your back.

A seemingly functional feathery white left wing suddenly bursts outwards from your back.

If the character already has wings, there doesn't appear to be any additional benefit or change. If the character changes race, the wings are not usable until the character is reincarnated.

Traits granted

Bonding to an elicat familiar grants the consort a significant luck bonus, which increases with bond strength; this bonus reaches the maximum of 30 at around "intimate" bond strength. Additionally, the Sahasrara chakra provided by the familiar grants the Situational Awareness trait when fully charged.

At around "resilient" bond strength, the elicat grants a point of night vision and increases light sensitivity.
